How do you finish the neckline?

If I may ask, I need some help with a simple deerskin cape I'm making - poncho-like - but I don't know how to finish the neckline or even whether I should finish it at all. If you don't bead your neckline, how do you finish it off, or do you leave it unfinished? I'm kind of at a loss and can use some help. Thanks.

No, for a woman, and I want it to be very plain, no beadwork. Should I do something like a blanket stitch around it, or leave it raw?

I always finish mine with another piece of leather, just sew on like you would fabric binding.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll blanket stitch it - I think that will look pretty good.

If the inside of your skin doesnt look to rough, you could also roll it a little and stitch it down. I did my daughters neckline that way, and used a contrasting sinew to sew it down. It looked really good!

Thanks. I did try that, but I didn't like the look. Wasn't rough enough. The blanket stitch is working, though.

I left mine unfinished, my husband finished his buckskin shirt off with a sinew whip stitch. I think that it's a matter of time and personal preference.

That's a great idea!

I always like an edge finished with ribbon as well.

If you have knitted a pullover sweater or shell, chances are you want to retain the stretchy quality of the neckline for easy wearing. Adding an inch of ribbing around the outer edge will accomplish this. Create the stretch knit neckline after the rest of the garment has been sewn together, as this will make the process simpler than trying to do each piece individually. The neckline can even be done in a contrasting color to give the item of clothing some panache.
