Looking for a quick and easy way to finish the neckline of a t-shirt you just made?  Looking for something different than the regular way to finish the neckline?

Then you have to try the style I show below.

How to:

Lay the T-shirt flat on the table.

Measure the width of the neckline from shoulder to shoulder.

Add another 1.5 cm for the seam.

x 2 to find the length of the neckband.

The width can be +- 3 or 4 cm, seam included.

Fold in half, wrong side out.

Stitch the neck back seam.

Find centre back and centre front of the t-shirt neckline as well as on the band.

Pin the band to the neck accordingly.

Stitch seam. Turn upwards.

Use your double needle to topstitch the neckline.

Take small lengths of the raw edge between your fingers and stre-e-e-tch to allow the stretch-knit fabric to curl to the outside.

Voila!
