my first scoop neck

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? that it actually came out really nice and matched one of the necklaces I had made a while back What advice would you give someone starting this project? just use real soft stretchy material to get a nice flowing look (also, I chose to do the straps but looks nice as a wrap around neck style also I just prefer straps)

What you will need

  • soft stretchy fabric (with a nice flow to it) thread
  • sewing machine

Q&A with cyndi 21

Lavonne asked:
I think this is stupendous! I admire sewers who make clothing without a pattern and this is something special. I always called this type of shirt a cowl neck though.
cyndi 21 answered:
thanks, and I could not remember what it was called
Lavonne asked:
Oh - it doesn't matter! I think it is the bomb!
cyndi 21 answered:
thank you very much
Galaxy_Gal asked:
Very nice. It would be helpful if you could add some more pictures showing the detail of how you did the front and how it attaches to the strap
cyndi 21 answered:
the straps are part of the front, it was just cut in a T shape and use the sides of the T as the straps, after folding them in half to make the drape look better in the front, its hard to describe but i will try to cut another one out and take pictures before i sew soon
Chris A asked:
Just a thought.... this would make a great top to the stiped dress you posted! Obviously not in stipes though. What do you think?"
cyndi 21 answered:
absolutely.....great idea!
wildivy asked:
Great projects, Cyndi. Would you mind also posting a tutorial or link for how to do a duct tape dressmakers dummy?
cyndi 21 answered:
I actually found the tutorial for the duct tape dummy on youtube, it is much better than i could describe it, if you cant find it let me know and i will try to find it and post the link for you. on youtube i just did a search for duct tape dummy or dressform
