The Juniper Cardigan Sew Along - Assembling the Neckband

Sunday, May 28, 2017

Yay, today we are sewing!! Let's assemble some Juniper Cardigan neckbands, shall we? If you need to brush up on your 'sewing with knits' skills, check out my blog post all about how to sew with knits here.

You'll need:
  • Your Juniper Cardigan neckband pieces (either the long line or cropped version, which ever you're making).
  • Interfacing pieces
  • Sewing machine with needle & thread
  • Iron

Steps:
1. Interface the wrong side of both neckband pieces, starting at the bottom of each neckline piece and matching notches.

Note: Always test your interfacing on a scrap of fabric first! If you're not sure about knit interfacing, check out this post.

2. Right sides together, matching double centre back notches, stitch neckline pieces together. Press seam open and trim down seam allowances.


3. At each end of your neckband piece (the interfaced ends), right sides together, fold in half and stitch down. Trim down seam allowances and notch corners.


4. Turn neckband out to the right side, gently poking out the bottom corners. Press.

5. Press the entire neckband piece in half, wrong sides together, matching notches.


Next up, attaching those sleeves!
