not so turtle, turltle neck

Bee won't wear turtle neck shirts.  They choke her. She all but dies when she puts one on.  It's dramatic.  We've gotten a few hand me downs that are going unworn.  I decided to work on that.

I just cut the front outside layer about 1 1/4 inch tall and the back side layer about 1/2 inch tall.  Then folded the front layer over the back and sewed in place.  It's jersey knit so no need to worry about the raw edges.  I used a long stitch to allow for some stretch.  

We have a few new shirts that are wearable now. Score, for a mama with a pair of scissors.
