Clean Finish a V (or Square) Neckline

This technique is courtesy of Sandra Betzina. This neckline has no band - it applies to any neckline where you want a clean finish with a sharp point.

Technique:

  1. Mark the point of the V on the garment fabric.
  2. Fuse stay tape over the garment seam line but not within an inch either side of the V (to reduce bulk).
  3. Stitch the facing to the garment, decreasing the stitch length either side of the V and hand-walking 2 stitches across the V.
  4. Clip right to the V.
  5. Press the seam open and grade the seams.
  6. Press the SA closed and then towards the garment.
  7. Understitch the SAs at ⅛" but stop an inch either side of the V (to reduce bulk).
  8. Press from the RS.
