V is for Versatile!

The V Neck placket might the hardest working neckline in The Tunic Bible line up! We have used this adaptable style to make everything from pajamas to elaborately embellished tunics to cocktail dresses.

What differentiates this placket from our others is that it is the only Tunic Bible version that does not require a cutting line to be printed on the front bodice pattern piece. The V Neck is also the only placket which utilizes the included Back Neck Facing pattern piece. When the back neck facing and placket are sewn together at the shoulders they combine to allow a flattering style that finishes slightly lower on the back of the neck.  It is a bit wider and more open in the front.

Here are the steps unique to assembly and application of the V Neck Placket. The example shown is for construction of the Inside Facing V Neck Placket.

For Bodice prep, marking the Centerline and detailed instruction of all steps please refer to this tutorial in The Tunic Bible.
VN******1.  Sew Bodice Front to Bodice Back at shoulder seams.

2.  With right sides together, sew V Neck Placket to Back Neck Facing at shoulders seams and press seams open.


3.  Finish outside edge by turning in the seam allowance and stitching in place, or by trimming and serging the edges.


4.  A dress form is helpful for this step…

With right sides together, place Placket over Bodice neckline, matching at shoulder seams and centerlines. Pin in place. (Inner raw edges will not meet – excess front and back neckline fabric will be trimmed away)


5.  Baste upper edge of Facing along Placket seam line by hand or machine

6.  Trim excess neckline edges of Front and Back Bodice even with upper edges of Front and Back Facing.


7.  Stitch seam along basting; clip to point and trim seam allowance

8.  Clip neck curves and press seam toward Facing; understitch Facing


Turn Placket to inside and press




Easy to sew and easy to embellish, this neckline is always a winner! A perfect choice for your first tunic, this collarless option is the most versatile of all the necklines in this book. The V-neck shape is well suited for nearly any fabric. The beauty of this neckline is its simplicity. Turn it inside for a clean finish or outside for a contrasting look. Give it a try and enjoy!

    Great way to do the neckline. This method allows you to preview the finished neck and adjust if necessary.

    Hey, That is a great tip stitching V necklines. Finally learnt how to do it correctly. Thanks a ton. I used to cut the bodice and facing in the required shape and then attach them. Nothing wrong with this. What used to happen was that, in attaching the facing to the bodice, the fabric would stretch more on one side than the other, eg; left side of front neck would be longer than the right side, and since there is slack, the neckline would look odd, at least to me. And I would do all kinds of adjustments.

    Thank you. The book didn’t cover this quite as well. I’m just getting ready to make my first Tunic. My muslin fits and I have my good fabric.

    Has there been any update on the sleeveless part. Like a facing instead of bias tape.
