I got this shirt from the Salvation Army. There isn’t anything wrong with it, except I think it’s a little too coy for my taste. I’m not a big fan of the keyhole on the front of the shirt at all. So today, I am going to show how a small change can make something that you own into a favorite piece.
Here is a closeup of the keyhole:
It isn’t bad, really, I just don’t like it.
This is going to be a relatively small and easy change. Since there is a little bow in the front, there is extra of the edging around the collar. I undid the bow, and undid the edging around the front.
Next, I made the front of the shirt into a “V” shape, by hand. The edging kind of looks like it is attached, but it isn’t.
Next, I just have to sew the edging back onto the “V” portion of the neckline. Since the material is very stretchy, I chose to do it by hand.
And then, just remake the bow!
Let me know what you think in the comments.

I like your adjustment! It looks like it fits/lies better after your alteration, bonus.
