Homemade Dickie

source: Miles Kimball

I have quite a few shirts that I dislike because of their necklines. They aren’t immodest by most people’s standards, but they are still lower than what I enjoy wearing.I was going through my closet yesterday and I decided to throw those shirts, plus a mock turtleneck with a stained front, into the garbage. Just as I was reaching for the trash, genius struck.

Why couldn’t I combine the shirts with the low necklines with the turtleneck?

I tried on several of the low cut shirts on top of the turtleneck and they looked great. The only problem was that I was waaay to hot for comfort.

I went to throw the shirts into the garbage a second time, and genius struck again.

I decided to make a homemade dickie out of the mock turtleneck. I took a scissors and cut the sleeves off the turtleneck and cut the sides open. Then I cut off its front and back till about 3 inches below the neckline. I tried it on with the other shirts again and this time it was perfect.

The result: Instead of throwing away four unusable shirts, I gained three very nice ones.
