Rhinestone Placket Tee Shirt Template
If you like to sew, you probably have a favorite tee shirt pattern that fits you perfectly. I like coming up with ways to change the look of a basic tee pattern and this project is my latest. This placket tutorial and template is yet another way to add interest to plain tees. Align it with your shirt pattern neckline and center front to create a pretty split neck opening design. I added special stitching to mine along with rhinestones and copied those elements on the edge of my 3/4 sleeves. Paint a design on the placket, embroider flowers on it, or cut it from lace. There’s no end to the possibilities for making dozens of different looks from one basic pattern and one basic template.
step 3 - Iron the interfacing to the wrong side of a fabric piece. With wrong sides together, cut a slit through all layers 3.25” from the top edge of the neck on the center front line.
step 11 - Pin the Cut Line Template to the center front and shoulder seam of your tee shirt pattern front piece. Lay the pattern/template on your fabric and pin in place. Remove the pins in the top part of the pattern and fold it away from the template as you cut around it. Replace the pattern and finish cutting the tee shirt front.
Consider adding a line of stitching and rhinestones on the edge of the sleeves.
My templates are designed to fit a small or medium shirt. If your pattern is larger, print the templates out at more than 100%.
