I absolutely love these hoodie designs but am a bit confused as to how she creates the neckline binding and edges on her hoodies. They don't seem to be one continuous piece of binding. So do you know if she attaches the hood or neckline first? Please help!!! See here:

The one I am looking at is the first one.  It is not binding.  It is a strip of fabric.  The neckline may be on the bias but the hood trim is probably not.  The binding on the hood has been added as a folded piece of fabric and it appears to be serged to the inside of the hood at the edges of the original hood.  To do the neckline it appears that she had probably added the trim to the edge of the blouse and then sewn the hood so that it lays under the neck trim.  I would baste the trim and then sew the trim and hood as one seam..and serge the edges.  The hood comes from beneath the trim when it is all righted which means that it is sewn last.

The trim of the first two seem to be the same type of fabric as the rest of the garment, just coordinating colors.
