Many a seamstress is already desperate about it: the neckline. It should look as clean and accurate as possible, because the cutout falls into the field of vision when you look at the wearer – errors and mistakes are quickly noticed. While as a sewing beginner you usually fall back on the popular so-called lazy neck bands, with increasing experience the desire for a little more professional skills also matures. This offers the edging of the neckline: The neckline is thus also neat from the left and there is also no need to search for a color-matching cuff, because you can simply use the same fabric from which the top was sewn. We’ll explain how to do this step by step.

This offers the edging of the neckline: The neckline is thus also neat from the left and there is also no need to search for a color-matching cuff, because you can simply use the same fabric from which the top was sewn. We’ll explain how to do this step by step.

The choice of edging the neckline should ideally be made before cutting, because in this case the neckline is cut without seam allowance. First you sew your shirt together and the shoulder seams are both closed.

Now the measuring tape is used: You measure how big the neckline has become. Make sure that you do not stretch the neckline so as not to determine an incorrect value. Using the measured circumference, you can now calculate the length of the neckline strip: Multiply the circumference by 0.8 if your edging strip is made of stretchy jersey, and by 0.85 if you are using less stretchy jersey, interlock or sweat.

Add a seam allowance of 1.5cm (0.75cm at each end) to the calculated value and you already have the length of the required strip. The height should be between 3.5 and 4 cm (including seam allowance). Now cut the strip to size and sew the short ends right sides together so that you get a ring.

This ring is sewn stretched to the neckline. In order for the stretch to be even, it is helpful to divide both the section and the ring into four sections. To do this, it is best to first mark the middle of the front and back parts (the break line). If you put the two centers on top of each other, the two resulting outer points are the missing points required. Do the same with the ring: the seam is your one point, the breakline is the other and if you put both on top of each other, you have the other two. Now put the ring with the right side on the left side of the neckline, whereby the seam from the ring meets the middle of the back piece and the other markings are also on top of each other. Then sew the ring to the neckline, just stretching the ring at a time.

Next, the edging strip is placed over the edge of the cutout. To do this, first fold it upwards, up to the edge of the cutout. Fold the open edge of the strip inside out so that it meets the cutout edge exactly. You fold the resulting break edge of the strip down – and you can already guess how great the result will look.

Now you pin everything tight again to finally topstitch the edging strip. The best way to do this is to choose a slightly larger stitch length, 3 – 3.5 has proven itself for me, and stitch the strip near the lower breaking edge to the neckline. It is advisable to proceed slowly, especially at the beginning. Et voilà, it’s ready, your neatly framed neckline! Wasn’t that difficult, was it? We are curious to see if you dare to try this technique and look forward to your photos!
