How to attach a neckband

Do you need a little help figuring out how to attach a neckband to your Laundry Day Tee or any of your other knit sewing projects? This video will show you just how to do it! This same method is used in the Samson shirt for kids and LOTS of other shirt patterns.

Attaching a neckband to a shirt can take a bit of practice. Learning to stretch the neckband to fit the neckline is the trickiest part. Just take your time and baste your neckband in place.

  • Thanks for the tutorial. Did Thomas make his shirt. He sounds like a good boy who is interested in what others around him do.

    How do I do a V=neck on the Classic Tee? I see the Vneck band pattern but do I use the same rounded front pattern?

      Hi Genevieve! The Classic Tee pattern has 3 different neckline cut lines: scoop, crew and v-neck. You’ll just cut on the V-neck line and use the corresponding v neck band. Happy Sewing! ~K

    Thank you for this! Thomas was close to the sewing machine, that made for a very close look at how to do this. So after the basting stitch, is it ok to topstitch with just a regular sewing machine? I have a serger but don’t know how to use it yet. I am glad I discovered your page.
