What is this called

Posted by true4uca (My Page) on

I have two light weight, long sleave T-shirts. They are too low (for me) in the neckline. I thought to just cut a mock turtle neck T-shirt and just use the neck part as an in sert. Kinda like I'm wearing two tops. I'm too warm already so I'd like to make one of these, but I don't know what it is called. I'd probably use a light weight cotton.

They used to be called dickies, but don't know if that's what they're still called. I think so, tho.

RE: What is this called

They are stilled called dickies, at least by me...

Here is a link that might be useful: dickies

RE: What is this called

Thank you so much, yes it's still called a dickie. Saw where to make one using a blouse. Will be trying that one for sure. Need to get to a thrift store & find a blouse I won't mind cutting up.

RE: What is this called

When I have a top that is cut too low, I just wear a tank top underneath.
