- 1 long sleeve polo shirt
- Sewing machine
- Straight Pins
- Seam Gauge
- 2 yds light gray ribbon
- Clear nail polish (put on the ends of the ribbon so they don't fray
First I cut down the center and remove the collar and the buttons. As I used a 1 inch ribbon, I folded the edges over 1 1/4 inches and pinned it in place all the way around
The shoulders didn't lay right so I had to make a cut on each side at the back neckline at the shoulders before stitching all the way around.
As this is something I am just going to wear around the house, I didn't bother trying to cover it up, but the next time I make one I will probably use seam binding or bias tape to finish the edges to give it a more professional look.
I am also going to probably add a large bead to the bottom of each ribbon as it has a habit of sliding into the garment on one side then I have to take it out and re-thread the darn thing.
