Saving Dora! a simple tutorial ...

Mary loves this top, but the neck is too tight, especially for her to get dressed independently!

So I cut off the tight collar part and carefully unpicked it where it was double stiched at the back of the neck

Then I cut a strip of stretchy fabric, a kid of fleece, and sewed that around the neck, right sides facing, as they say!

Roll the strip around and pin, then sew in place with tiny stitches ...

Then i cut off the excess ont he inside and voila - Mary is very happy!
