Gather all of your supplies. If you are trimming the neckline, it is very helpful to have the pattern of your shirt. If you do not have it, don't fret. Just take the measurements from the shirt you are adding trim to very carefully.
Note that seam allowances for this How To are 5/8" (1.5 cm). These are instructions for attaching a rib knit band to the neckline of a shirt. This can be used for sleeve, armhole, and hem finishes as well, or just about anywhere else you want to add some stretchy finish!
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
