I have a few turtlenecks that are made of beautiful fabrics, but I can’t stand the high, tight neckline. Time for another DIY recycle project to makeover this sweater! The look of see through fabric, embroidered, and embellished tulle are so trendy right now – why not add a touch of glamour 🙂 I have listed all the steps here and included a video below with the full tutorial.
Supplies: Turtleneck, Tulle Fabric, Sewing Supplies including scissors, quilters ruler, tailors chalk, pins, universal or stretch thread (you can find the sewing supplies here on my amazon page)
The first thing we are going to do is cut off the sleeves and collar (my turtleneck has a raglan sleeve, but any sleeve style will work). Cut inside of the sleeve seamline and underneath the collar. Save the sleeves to use as a pattern.
Mark the back of the sweater: Trace the back for the sweater outline onto the tulle fabric from the underarm up.
Mark a line across the sweater where you want the sweater fabric to meet the tulle fabric. Add a seam allowance and cut. Align the sweater with the tulle fabric. add a seam allowance onto the tulle fabric and cut. (the video below shows all these steps in detail).
With right sides together, pin the tulle fabric to the sweater fabric.
