How do you finish a neckline?


Before joining the neckline facing is it a good idea to finish the raw non-neckline edge to prevent it from fraying. We’ve overlocked the edge, but you could also zigzag, or give it a little hem by pressing the raw edge in to the wrong side by 1/4″ or 6mm and stitching into place.

Finishing a neckline can be a bit of a tricky business. Hemming it as you would a skirt or a sleeve distorts the fabric and generally makes the thing you are making look a mess.
