Tee shirt pattern - I used the free tee shirt in the Day Camp Set from Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop.
2. Reusing the neckline is a little tricky, and you might have to play with it. Fold the shirt at center front and line up the pattern on the fold. Line up the neckline as closely to the pattern as you can. The pattern I used was not a v-neck, but I could still line it up with the curve.
3. The back neckline of adult shirts is usually a pretty shallow curve, so I just stretch the neckline a bit to make it work. Line up the center back of the pattern along the fold of the shirt.
5. Now you can assemble the pattern the way the instructions recommend.
*I have an extra tip. I used part of the bottom of the shirt for another upcycle coming later in the series. This meant that the front of the shirt was shorter than the pattern. I still cut out the front and used a gray scrap to make up for what was missing.
The problem of part of the shirt being cut out made a really fantastic colorblocking detail. I really love the stripes next to the block of dark gray. It's a really fun detail!
