I know this isn’t organizing but wanted to know if there’s an easy hack to make neckline of T-shirt a tad smaller.
Not a huge deal, but otherwise I’d have to wear a shell underneath a great T-shirt, which has perfect sleeves & an almost perfect neckline.

I purchased this on Amazon. If you live in Lakewood you can pick it up from them.

Nope not all all very simple. It comes with instructions as well. I fixed a few necklines from dresses as well as a tichel.

Try emailing them to see if they sell it anywhere near you or if they can send it to you directly. They send you video instructions and my young teen was able to watch them and do it herself.

hey I am a seamstress
pretty easy - only need a thread and needle
turn the t shirt inside out and go to the shoulders seam
the area you will be taking in is the shoulder seam by the neck
so make a diagonal line on the shoulder seam- on one side from where it hits the sleeve (leave it there as it is) and on the other side to a 1.5 cm or 3/4 inch down on the neck side
and then hand sew it
its really easy- I wish there was a way to show you a drawing
good luck

If you can't get it from Amazon, you can order something very similar from Shein. Just search for "elastic thread". You'll need a big needle or threading aid as well to get it around the inside channel of the neckline. I recommend doubling the thread for better durability.
I bought that elastic thread from Shein before the war (since then I've been boycotting them). It did work nicely, I fixed up the necklines on a bunch of tops and shirts of mine.

Edited to add, to avoid Shein, maybe you can ask for elastic thread in some local, non-Jewish arts and crafts or sewing supplies/taylor shop, if such shops exist where you live.

Does this make the t shirt look bunched up after?

That depends on how much narrower you make it. If it's a bit, hardly. But if you try to shrink a very wide neckline by a lot, it will have a kind of ruffles radiating out around it in the end. That doesn't always have to be bad, I have one shirt that happened to, but I still find it okay to wear, the ruffles *could* be part of the design.

Thanks.

I usually use a grip/bobby pin to just tighten it a little bit at the back .
My wig usually covers it.

I really really dont like wearing tshirts underneath.

Agree, a bobby pin works wonders. I carry a pack around in my purse.
