Have been sewing quite a few jersey tops on my sewing machine lately. Found that when doing a scoop neck I apply the binding and do a double row of stitching. Then I cut up to the last row of stitches (very carefully!) and this forms a much neater finish than the one suggested on sewing pattern. Anyone else tried this?

Welcome!

That is a great finish and I think a lot of people here do that. Someone here posted a link to a video on the Threads site that showed how to do that and it does turn out really well.

I wonder what the link was on the Threads site. I am not sure I know what you mean.

Here is the video..

when I do mine,, IF I don't use my coverstitch machine,, I sew the band on with a narrow zigzag stitch,, turn to the inside, and use the double needle to topstitch,, I like using the zigzag stitch cause it gives the material a little more stretch, this is helpful if there isn't a lot of stretch in the material to begin with... AND, have also found depending on the material used,, you can't always use a plain double needle, there are double needles for knits,, ( I didn't realize this,) the last top I made,, I couldn't use the double needle, my stitches on one side kept skipping.. so I had to do a narrow zigzag again,, looks a little decorative on the outside,, but it works.....

That's the wonderful Sarah Veblen video that I suggest beginners should put in their Bookmarks.

That is a great video. I do mine that way too. I thought it was something different. Thanks for finding it.

I'm not a beginner and have used this video several times (in my Favorites) because Sarah explains it so well. I watch it for a good review of the steps and then go to work.

I, too, have recommended it here on PR in several threads.
