Lagoon Neck Binding ruffle tutorial

The Lagoon Top, Dress & Skirt pattern has a hidden neck binding and (optional) ruffle on the neckline. This may be an unfamiliar finish to some, but it is so clean and pretty, that we encourage you to give it a try!

Here are a couple more tips for the hidden neck binding:

  • Use a good quality knit fabric with good stretch and recovery! The lighter weight the fabric used, the more likely the neck binding and ruffle will gape out away from the neckline. This is not desired! Save time and frustration by using the right kind of fabric.
  • Pressing is your best friend! Use a lot of steam and press the neckline often while you are sewing it.
  • Pull the neck binding slightly below the neckline while topstitching it in the final step so it does not show on the outside of the Lagoon. This is especially important if you are eliminating the ruffle on the neckline.
