If there are any fellow sewers out there who actually wanted to try out the ruchey goodness shirt, I have made a tutorial for you! Here are the following steps.
|Remove original neckband (if you want to reuse it, seam rip it and set it aside)|
|Fold front of shirt in half, mark the distance from the fold of how much you want to take out (I removed 3 inches from the centre, 6 in total)|
|You can either leave the middle section folded, or unfold it like I did. You will use this piece as a template for your new section.|
|Now gather the fabric. I gathered mine by basting, and then hand gathering.|
|Pin the right sides together of the new middle piece and the front sides.|
|Pin your neckband to the shirt. I have also re-hemmed the bottom and taken the sleeves up|
|Once you are all hemmed up, you are finished, voila!!|
Yea, I hate taking my own picture, that is why I am wearing those glasses.
