    Would you not just … cut a V? What am I missing?

    The trick is in the neck binding. The join is sewn in a ‘V’ to give you the neat finish.

    Yep, I’ve seen it done with one end crossing the other at the V point, but personally I think it looks better if the ends are joined at the correct angle to give a vertical seam in the neck binding at the V point.
    Then there’s just the technical aspect of sewing an acute angled neckband into an obtused angled neckhole. Ha ha, look at me, now I’m working geometry into a sewing problem. Nerd alert!

    Yay, maths! Geometry! Can we include some algebra too? 🙂 Just to work out correct angle to sew the band together 🙂

    I don’t use the cross over method, too bulky. I cut a triangle out of each end and sew and turn. Perfect’V’.

    If someone would like to write a tutorial on the chevron method (the V without the cross-over), I’d be so thrilled. It’s on my To Do list, but it’s not rising to the top anytime soon, I fear.

    Oh, the binding, of course. Yes, I can see how that would get bulky quickly. Again, I’m not trying minimize the difficulty of something I haven’t done, but just asking because I don’t know, is it different than making a mitered corner on a quilt binding? Perhaps because of the stretchiness of the knit?

    I believe that it is basically the same, Sarvi. Perhaps someone will correct me if I’m wrong.

    After making Tildy some dungarees I would like to bump @Helena’s suggestion of a dungarees/overalls/romper/playsuit pattern.

    And I have been hankering after a woman’s trench pattern a la the Secret Agent 🙂

    I’d love a little kids underthings pattern–say, girls panties, boys briefs/boxer briefs and boxers and a camisole for girls and sleeveless undershirt for boys.

    I third the trench coat for women! Would also like to second the under clothes idea. And more relaxed fit blouses for women.
