I attached the neckband per the directions and then after that I added the elastic thread topstitching. I sewed 3 rows of stitching the width of the pressure foot apart. I think it gathered up nicely.
- Simplicity 1805
- Used View D with View A/B sleeve hem option.
- Very easy pattern and super comfy shirt
- I think I bought this knit at Jo-Ann's, specifically for the color--knit interlock
- Elastic thread at neck and hem
4 rows of sewing at the hem area--about the width of the pressure foot apart.
You can decide how much "flounce" you want after the ruching portion.
You could do this right at the edge of the hem and basically have no flounce.
