A Neckline Education Series Introduction

One of the hardest parts about starting a blog {for me} was that I felt like I had to have an opinion about something.  It seems like to blog, you have to know your position and put your thoughts on said position out there and find agreement or disagreement--overall creating some sort of conflict.  And conflict is a thing I avoid like the plague.  I don't like to rock the boat with my personal opinions.

So don't don't don't take this as a judgement of what you do or don't choose to wear, ok?  I like to think that we're all friends, here.  And this is primarily for me, but I thought maybe I'd share jut in case anyone else was having a similar problem.  The problem being that I was going through my shirts recently and you know what I found out?  Half of my shirts were unwearable because of one silly little problem: those blasted gaping necklines.  I don't know if it's just my body type? my delinquent shoulders? or what? but sometimes I put on a shirt and I'm constantly adjusting the neck so my beezer strap won't show.

The thing is that I'm a mom and I already have plenty to keep me busy without having to worry about pulling at, tugging on, or adjusting a shirt a million times.  I'd also rather not add another cami/bulky shirt just to keep my neck covered. I just want to put on a shirt, feel somewhat stylish, and know that it will cover me so that I can be comfortable doing what's important--chasing my children who are running away from me at the grocery store.  Got it?

Since I discovered this trouble with my shirts, I've tried to just purchase shirts that keep me covered comfortably.  And that's great, but I also live in the real world of a fairly small clothing budget and so buying new shirts can only happen so often.  :)  So I thought I'd try to fix this problem with my trusty ol' sewing machine and I created myself a little series.

An education in necklines or neck ed, if you will.....  :)


Just a few tips on how to fix the necklines so you can wear a shirt and feel comfortable.  Buckle up--we start tomorrow!
