Wow. That is WAAAAYYYYY too much work. I'm not a seamstress and I'm not going to pay someone else to do it. I mean, I like the designs as much as the next guy, but these are $12 t-shirts. It just doesn't seem to be worth that much trouble.
There are zillions of t-shirt sites out there, and especially since a lot of the designs go to various sites, I'd rather pay a bit more for better quality. Ript has turned to crap, but some of the other shirt of the day sites still seem to use pretty decent materials.
I'm not an overly picky person. I don't care if a shirt is 1/2 inch longer or the material is a millimeter thinner. But gigantic neckholes are not comfortable and also make you look like a complete loser when you wear them. Plus they look sloppy and you can't get away with wearing them certain places where you might if the shirt had a normal neck line.
I appreciate the tip, but it isn't worth the trouble to dissect a t-shirt collar and insert elastic into it and stitch it all back up, especially since there's no way I could ever even do that.
