First issue was we had shoulder pads. Sigh. Pulled those puppies out. Next I got rid of the collar. I finished it with bias tape. Then I folded back the top of the neck (you can see the loop at my neck- can't button it!). Simply I just tacked it down to the lining portion of the top.
You have seen the top with my jeans refashion so no big surprise here.
Cheers! (12 down 87 left!)
