Cowl-Neck Tee

This week I made a resolution to start using up the clothing items in my "alter-me and I will be beautiful" clothing pile.  This pile has grown to about 4 skirts, 5 tops, and various other pieces of clothing.  It may not seem like alot but being that I am working out of my bedroom for alterations and this pile is taking up my floor space.

So as an effort I went scrounging for some tutorials/ideas to alter some tees that I had stuck in the pile because I really never wear them as a result of the wide/lowcut neckline.  Well as I was stalking pursuing Katy's awesome blog: Sweet Verbena  (if you haven't checked it out, well, you should! right now) I discovered this tutorial:

(among the other really neat tutorials she has...scroll to the bottom for a list of some of my favorites)

and then I thought "hmmm....that cowl neck adds extra fabric around the neck region...I'll bet that it would work just splended on those shirts I have at home!"

And so I did.  And it that is!  See for yourself:

Now for some blogger love for Sweet Verbena:
