I have been trying to locate a video that describes how to put on a neckband without actually measuring the opening or the band. Much to my dismay, I can not locate this lovely video. So, I have attempted to recreate how she showed me ages ago how to do this. It is a super quick method and my neckbands always come out hugging the neck. It is way easier than measuring everything under the sun, subtracting a percentage, sewing it in the round and then pinning it in fourths. That just exhausts me, saying all of that. I am only a patient sewer if the tediousness produces really good results. This technigue is found on my blog: Clairesews.blogspot.com . I have not mastered this site on how to make all of the necessary steps, but my blog has it all! Happy Sewing!!
