I'd like to create a neckline similar to a normal t-shirt, the ribbed kind of thing.
Does anyone have advice on how to do this, or at least make a neck that is close fitting like that, and lays flat? I made a sample but it just doesn't sit down flat.

Did you use ribbed material or regular material?

You will want your ribbing to be slightly smaller than your neckline, otherwise it might stand up straight. You should have to stretch the ribbing to get it to fit into the neckline.

I think there is a tutorial for this on burdastyle.com

You can use the same material as the tshirt to bind it off.  Just cut out a long strip of the material (make sure the stretch of the knit lines up with the length of the strip).  Sew or serge it onto the neckline (right sides together) pulling the strip taut (but not the shirt) as you go.  Steam the seam up. Flip the strip back to cover the seam on the inside, steam it in place.  Then carefully stitch in the ditch to hold down the back of the binding.  Did that make sense?  I learned from Sew U: Home Stretch which is a great book.
