Narrow Binding on Necklines in Knit Fabric tutorial by Deepika Prakash. This is the nicest, neatest knit binding I've ever put on by machine and will definitely use this technique again in the future. I used the rose color stripe of my fabric as the binding color and after trying twice to sew the binding on per pattern instructions, the third time was the charm using Deepika's technique. By then my poor knit binding piece was stretched out and since scraps had been sewn together to create a length long enough for the binding due to fabric shortage in the first place, I had no choice but to use my stretched out piece of binding for the final application. As you can see in the photo below, there are little gathers/pleats at the neckline because this neckline was too low, and would not lie straight due to being stretched out, so I came up with the idea to use Coats and Clark Button Craft Thread and a blunt end needle to 'sew' a long length of thread in the wrong side of the binding casing, pulled and knotted it where I liked the way the neckline looked, and tied it off. Perfect! It pulled the neckline up enough to where I feel decent, and the top is easy to get on and off anyway AND the little gathers/pleats adds a nice little design feature methinks.
