Making T-shirt is easy, expect for one part - the neckline. Well, that part can be tricky - but no worries, I'm here to help!

This tutorial is created in partnership with needle industry experts - Organ Needles.

Organ Needles have a wide range of products and you can find a right needle for any type of project that you have on hand - even for tricky materials like super stretch fabrics. I've been using Organ Needles for several years in all of my machines - industrial sewing machine, domestic sewing machine, embroidery machine and serger.

In this technique, we will be sewing T-shirt collar on both sewing machine and serger. When sewing knit fabrics on sewing machine, project success highly depends on using the right needle and you want to switch from Universal needle to special Jersey needle.
Organ Needles Jersey needle has a rounded tip, which makes needle slip between fabric threads instead of cutting through them, and ensures good, durable seam results. Because of that, you want to always make sure to switch from Universal to Jersey needle when sewing knit fabrics!
On my serger, I'm using Organ Needles ELx705CR needles. These serger needles are suitable for sewing knit fabrics, so you can sew T-shirt fabrics with confidence!
Additionally, these needles are Chromium finished for better performance and durability.
