How to Cut the Perfect Boat Neck Top
DIY Upcycling Clothes
Today I'm going to show you how to cut the perfect boat neck top out of a men's crew neck tee, making sure that it fits you and it's not too big.
- To start the boat neck the first thing you want to do is fold your shirt in half.
- Mark with your chalk exactly where the middle of the shirt is.
- Start four fingers width away from the neck of your shirt and start cutting in a cut in at a curve until you get to your halfway chalk mark.
- Now fold over and line it up, this is what you'll use for the pattern for the other half.
There we have a perfectly cut boat neck! Stretch it out to roll the neck. I like this a lot better than the high neck that we used to have. I think it looks nice wide like this, but if you'd like a little bit smaller boat you can always measure in just three fingers from your original neckline instead of the four that I did.
