Step 2: Mark Shape
Use your ruler and colored pencil to mark the square shape at the front of the shirt. The lines should be made just slightly outside of the existing neckline.
Step 3: Cut
Cut along the lines on the front to create the square neckline. Then, cut straight across the back right under the neckline to remove that strip of material.
Step 4: Add Ruche Effect
Pinch the material into tiny folds at the center of the neckline in the front. Then secure the folds together using your needle and thread to create the ruched/sweetheart neckline effect.
Step 5: All Done!
It's that easy! In just a few minutes, you've turned a regular shirt into a trendier top that will add some spice to any outfit.

Question 1 year ago on Step 2
Is it possible to do this on a lace dress that has a lining? It's a crew neck dress and I would absolutely adore it if I could change the neckline to a sweetheart. Please let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks much :-)

Just what I wanted to ask - the edges just remain raw?
Reply 2 years ago
Yes, these raw edges are just fine because of the t-shirt material, but it will depend on the type of shirt you're using!

Will the material fray along the cut edges?
