Very nice top - great video tip - your neckline looks really good.

Thanks for the tip about the binding. The link was instructive. That flip and stitch method is a pain and could leave the neckline stretchy. A binding is a better method indeed.

This could be your perfect tee. I don't see how it could fit any better. Beautiful job. Billie

The picture of the fabric is gorgeous--just up my alley. I agree that the neckline on knits are better with a binding even if it from the same fabric. You said you were holding your tails so the machine would not eat your fabric. One thing I do is start an inch in on the seam, back up and then go forward and that seems to alleviate the problem. You can also use a very small piece of stabilizer at the beginning of the seam.

Looks wonderful...I read all of the knit top reviews in detail...because although I have sewed all my life not a lot with knits.

Thanks for the great video tip! The neck looks great. Re the show through just be careful what bra you chose if you go out to a club with strobe lighting (its like a flash cubed, makes white underwear GLOW!)

Yes, perfect!

Nice shirt. I just made this one too a few days ago, and I have to agree that the flip and stitch neckline isn't the best. Actually, I don't think it's a good method for any tee-shirt. I'm going to be making this one again, and next time i'll just use binding for the neckline.

Very good looking tee shirt. The neck band looks very nice.
