I love wearing my husband’s shirts, unfortunately, he doesn’t love me taking them. I finally gave in and bought myself a pack of mens’ undershirts
to get me through this pregnancy, but was disappointed when I realized that the neck line was super low.
How to Make a Neckline Higher
There’s nothing comfortable about having to put your hand on your chest every time you bend over. Luckily, I came up with a quick fix–a dart.
I simply made a dart in the back of the neckline, and it created a higher neckline in front. This was the easiest fix for me since I didn’t want to deal with the shoulder seams.
Keep in mind that this shirt is HUGE, so the dart in the back didn’t affect the rest of the shirt.
Because I normally wear my hair down, the subtle dart in the back doesn’t bother me at all.
Since the shirt is a knit, I used a zig-zag stitch and a ball point needle. I went over the zig-zag with a straight stitch after so the thread wouldn’t show through.
After sewing the dart, be sure to check the fit before you cut off the extra fabric.

And the front :)
Good luck if you try it!
