Saw this on RTW and it works. Cut your knit binding 1 and 1/2" + extra length and Serge one long edge in contrast or a color of your print. (Cutting it in a circle will give you more ruffling.)

Sew unfinished edge Right side to Inside of the neckline in 1/2" seam, then flip over the SA to outside and stitch down above the serging, which makes a trim with a little ruffling. I finished one for GD by starting in the front instead of shoulder or back, then lapping ends and adding a button at the center.

Sounds cute! And I like your idea of the overlap with button.

Thank you Lord for my mother who taught me the joy of sewing, for my father and husband who encouraged my sewing, for the talent You gave me to sew, and for all the special people in my life to sew for.
