Cutting bands for the front of a jacket

Editor_Anne | Posted in Fashion & Design on

I bought a pattern for a simple, loose-fitting, unlined jacket that has a three-inch band running up one side, around the back of the neck, and down the other side (Vogue 1493).

The pattern calls for the band to be cut on the crosswise grain. It seems to me it should be cut on the bias, so it will lie flat around my neck.

Does anyone have any wisdom about this to share?

Many thanks.

    The crosswise grain would help keep the neckline from stretching out. The band will stand up around your neck.
    Happy sewing!

    Oh! That makes sense. Thanks, Marsha!
