buttondown yoke style top

PHOTO EXAMPLES coming soon.

grab a big t-shirt and a buttondown shirt. it would be swell if you have a tank top for tracing.

instead of the buttondown shirt, you could also use fabric or another t-shirt for the yoke.


lay the tank top on the t-shirt, and mark like so.

cut where you've marked, but only cut the scoopneck out of the front.

 


so the back piece should look like this ------->

sew the front and back pieces together.

feeling a little lost? check out the sewing basics or post a question in the forum.

save that piece that was cut out to make the scoopneck. that will serve as a pattern for the yoke.

lay the t-shirt yoke pattern on top of the collar of the buttondown shirt. cut around it as shown.


now you can match up the buttondown yoke with the scoopneck of the t-shirt and sew them together.


using what's left of the buttondown shirt, you can add ruffles, sleeves, etc. to finish it off.
