Today’s steps include either a hood or a neckband. In the video, I’ll be attaching a banded hood. The neckband option will be a little less involved, and there are full photos in the written pattern tutorial if you do get stuck.
- stretch/ease the band where needed; do not stretch the garment
- seam allowance is included on pattern pieces; be sure to take the full seam allowance, especially if you’re using a serger.
- if you’re using fabric with less than the recommended stretch, you may have bunching along the neckline
- be sure to quarter your neckline/bands evenly; this will give you the best result
