I first saw this twisted neckband treatment back in 2008 from Christina over at Assorted Notions. There has been ton of these on PatternReview.com and in blogland lately. I used KS3740 as my base t-shirt pattern and then just made my own neckband. I wanted a t-shirt that was nice and open in the front to show off the neckband. I used a stretchy Rayon/Lycra from JoAnn’s. It’s actually pretty nice. It’s a bit on the thin side but I love the color and the recovery is nice. I added an extra inch or so to the arms because I like extra long sleeves. I made the shirt a bit too long so I’ll shorten it although it’s perfect for tucking in right now.
I was looking at Fabric.com and now I want yummy solid knits. I maxed myself out with crazy, wild knit prints in my last order. These are also knit ITYs. Since I love the print ones, I figure I’ll love the solid ones too.
For you anti-polyester folks, there is also some cotton/lycra solids that looks nice too. Although, there aren’t many colors.
