Someone requested a tip on how I made the V-neck on my DS T-shirt.
I make a short snip (<1/4") at the bottom of the v of the shirt front. I cut my banding about 2" wide and a couple inches shorter than the neckline (this amount varies according to how stretchy the knit is...this bamboo knit is not very stretchy.) I press the band in half and lay it by the neckline. Then I mark the "V" cut. I cut the "V", adding 1/4" seam allowance.
I make the seam then snip the v
Pressed seam
I carefully place the seam at the tip of the "v" snip and stitch first one side from about 1" away from snip, then stop and turn the front shirt fabric to go around the "v".
Going around "V"
It will look like this
I put a few stitches with my straight stitch machine at the center back for correct placement, and finish the band with the serger, starting at the "V" and ending up at the other side of the "V".

Excellent instructions! I was excited to find a Vogue tee pattern in my stash which has these same instructions (8536). They work great!!
