Fixing a Bothersome Neckline

I liked this neckline in the dressing room and in theory.

But one day I realized I could cut off the ties and tuck the raw ends up under each other and make a casually coiled collar.  I did the sewing by hand.

Now I can wear necklaces or brooches.  Much better.

(This is the $4 mohair sweater mentioned in this post)


  1. I love your simple alteration. The sweater is lovely.

  2. I like the theory of the original neckline as well, but like you, the reality is not as admirable. Now I know what to do. Great idea!


I enjoy the conversation in the comments - thank you for that. I will answer your questions here in the comments. Please note that I don't want the world wide web to know my family's surnames and location.
