EDIT: okay reading over that, it kind of doesn't make sense.

SO what i need to know is, why is it that when i sew a neckline it sometimes flops over? (this is without using ribbing, just stretchy t-shirt fabric)

AND what is the best way to put in a neckline using ribbing? (from scratch and lets say if i wanted to modify a regular t-shirt to have a lower neckline)

please help! and thanks in advance for any tips/tricks.

I know in one of my T-shirt patterns it says to cut the bias strip for the neckline about 1\\\" to 1 1/2\" shorter than the actual length of the neckline. Did I explain it well enough?  If the neckline measures 25 inches around then cut the strip 14\\\" around and then sort of stretch it as you sew it on so that it goes all the way around.  I\'ve done this on at least 7 tees so far and have never had a problem.

thats exactly what i do.......
stretch it as i apply it to the neckline.
and i always topstitch it afterwards also, although its not necessary.
