I have posted on the knitting forum about trying to make a dickie. You talk about cold, it has been zero and below here for a long time, but I have lived in Texas and remember how cold it was when those Northerns blew down. I wonder if you can take an old blouse and use the collar part to make into a dickie to wear under sweatshirts or sweaters. I even dug out my long underwear. Barb

RE: Another question.

Yes you can,i've done ths for years.Just cut the whole sleeve out,leavng the shoulder seam intact..Then contnue to cut away most of the blouse,leavng just enough on the front to come down over your boobs,but not below them.Then cut away the back,to form a 6 to 8 inch need these peces left on to keep your dickey from slipping around.

Wish i could draw on here.But hope ths makes sense to you .If you know what a dckey looks like,then you'll understand.

Plmk if this is helpful to you.

RE: Another question.

Thanks so much Kathi. I thought this should be possible. I need something under my vneck sweaters but not too bulky. Appreciate. Barb
P.S. What is plmk

RE: Another question.

Plmk please let me know!!

For myself i cant stand anything up around my neck.So i cut all the ribbing off the necklines,then hem the necklines with either a matching thread,or a varigated thread,and sometime one of the fancy stitches on my machine.
With the sweatshirts i either do the same or wear dickeys
If you aren't sure what i mean,let me know,and i'll poost a picture.
