Step 3: Sew neck

We are attaching the front and the back pieces above where your arms would be. Pin and sew from the top of the neck down to the edge of the shoulder on the right and the left side. I used the widest zig zag stitch on my machine (7mm wide) and a 1.5 or 2mm stitch length.

Sometimes I'm super lazy and don't pin my fabric before sewing it, but that's a terrible idea with stretchy fabric like this. You may find that sometimes you have to be careful to make sure that the top piece of fabric is feeding into the sewing machine as fast as your bottom piece. I was able to do this by stretching my fabric a little when I was feeding it into the machine. If you have a lot of trouble, the internet recommends a walking foot attachment for your machine.

<p>the name is hilarious</p>

<p>How about a couple of googely eyes above the zipper? very cool idea, I like it!</p>
RuthGrace, this is AWESOME! Long flights, (long public commutes of any kind, for that matter), are only one of the very practical reasons for this sweater. I know of at least a few people who would greatly love this sweater, to assist in sensory overload situations, with their autism spectrum disorders. Pair it with earplugs, and the Autie or Aspie could get some desperately needed down time, even surrounded by family and friends - like in long car rides, college dorms(or other gotta-room-share situations), &amp; summer camp. You could market this. You SHOULD market this.
<p>Useful to pass the night at university on a big project when there is no more bus or subway to come back home to sleep. Was force to use a tuque instead.</p>
<p>Sending this to a friend of mine, I think she'll love it. BTW, I think you meant YKK for the zipper<br></p><p>http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-24-Assortment-Mix-Colors-YKK-3-Skirt-Dress-Nylon-Coil-50-ZIPPER-WHOLESALE-/351855737841?var=&amp;hash=item51ec3c7bf1:m:mPSxPWO5_6IjHu5vKFXmKSg</p>
<p>This is wonderful! I lol'd at the cover photo.</p>
<p>The zipper resembles Kermit's mouth. This isn't made for walkin!</p><p>Beth calls her head stocking a sculpture, what do you call this?</p>
<p>I would have loved to have this when I was living in the Bay Area - this is hilarious! :D</p>
Love this
<p>I love the &quot;leave me alone&quot; feature!</p>
