Mending Week Part IV & V: Turtlenecks to Summer Tops

Mally no longer needed these turtlenecks so I decided to make them into summer tops.  The black one only took 5 minutes to cut off the neck close to the seam, leaving seam along neck opening.  I folded the seam to the inside and topstitched it down.  I cut the sleeves at a short-sleeve length and left these unhemmed.  Finished!

With the white turtleneck, I removed the entire collar and neck seam as well as both sleeves and sleeve seams.  For the sleeves, I serged the raw edge then added cap sleeves.  I added a bib front with 3 buttons then serged the neck opening.  Fast, cute and free!
