modify the shoulders of a tank top

Reply Mon 1 Aug, 2011 11:54 am
I am going to have neck surgery and wear a large Neck Brace. I am thiking of opening the shoulders on a few of my sleeveless loose fitting tank tops. Could you suggest a way to close the seams at the shoulder? I had thought of velcro or maybe snaps. Do you have any suggestions?

No, but it's an interesting question. Let me bump it up for you.

Actually, after that surgery, you might not have enough dexterity for awhile to pull anything over your head. A tank would be your best shot, though.

I bet velcro would be a bit easier to sew on as it doesn't have to align absolutely perfectly, plus you could adjust it a little if necessary.

I think Roger's onto something. Will you be able to get anything over your head?

Ask your doc for a referral to an o.t. to discuss this sort of thing. I wouldn't be surprised if something like a true wrap top is recommended. Slide your arms in, tie loosely.


this is a good time of year to check places like Old Navy for inexpensive tops like this on sale.
