Sewing On Neck Reinforcment

Doll Tutorial Picture 27

There are two options on how to do this.

  • The first is to wrap the strip around the neck, tucking the unfolded end into folded and sew down the ends, with a few additional stitches into the neck to secure it.

  • The second is to whip stitch the two edges all the way around.

  • These pictures are the first time I've done this, previously I either left it as it was (having used strong thread for the running stitch), or slip stitched around the neck attaching the head and shoulders to each other about 1/2 cm (1/4") from the line of running stitch.
  • Re-enforcing the neck is a good idea, as the running stitch could snap and you'd find yourself with a linebacker in a dress.
