I took a class last year from Sandra and she brought this pattern and we used stay tape around the neck - Not sure why she would say to stay stitch.

You did a nice job- it looks very good! I haven't ventured to make version A yet because of all the tweaks I'll need to do to the contrast bands at the neck to get it to fit correctly. I have made the basic version (B) and really like it. I like the way that Sandra suggests finishing off the neckline in that version. It is simple and elegant when the facing is made from a stretch mesh.

Thanks, Carolyn. I wore the shirt yesterday, and really want to try it again.

I think that's why we're all here, Katy! Thanks.

Good save! Although I have this pattern, I've been hesitant to use it, since I think the inset could be problematic in the wrong fabric. Which I think you proved... ;) thx for sharing your experience!

Thanks, Elona. I love how much we learn with every garment we create.

Thank goodness your experience led you to reconsider the construction details. I particularly detest a blanket recommendation to stqystitch knits.

Thanks, Changma. I'm thrilled with the fit!

I agree, your approach to the neckline looks nicer with your fabric. The fit looks good, too.
