A Fixer upper
McCalls 6607. The lowness of the armholes bothered me so I never wore it. I decided to take it apart and fix it. After the cowl was removed (isn't taking zig-zag stitches out of a knit fabric fantastic fun?), I cut the shoulder seams off then retraced the front and back neck edges 4 inches lower. I half-assed resewed the shoulder seams, without redoing the hem. (If there is any other short woman out there who has not shortened a tank in this fashion, raise you hand. I didn't think so!) Then I sewed the cowl back in and Voila! Now it has normal armholes and its actually tunic length and I will actually wear it, though it is still a hazard around the stove.
