Re: How To Sew a Classic T-shirt Neckband

Hi,
Great tutorial! I have made a ton of neckbands for t-shirts and this works great when the neckline is a crew or close to the neck. I have done a tutorial about doing the same but without measuring b/c a lower neckline has several different curves (radius). A crew neck is almost a perfect circle. Also the standard 15% reduction does not always work well because there are so many different "stretchiness" for knits. I usually do self fabric neckbands because of how difficult it is to match ribbing and the limited supply of ribbing at a local fabric store. My tutorial is on Burda Style. It is called how to do a neckband without measuring or something like that.
