4 Different Types of Necklines That Make a Statement, Kalispell, Montana

You don’t need to buy a bold-colored blouse or a patterned top to make a statement. Even the most basic shirts come in a variety of neckline designs, each one suitable for various types of occasions. If you’re interested in sewing a garment and are unsure what type of neckline is right for you, here’s a description of a few styles.

4 Types of Necklines

1. Fancy Crew Neck

sewingThe fancy crew neck has a round neckline without a collar; it’s the classic style for athletic T-shirts. However, it can also be used for a wide variety of garments, such as sweatshirts, T-shirt dresses, and pajama tops.

2. Sweetheart Neckline

The sweetheart neckline gets its name from being shaped in a double scallop, which resembles the top half of a heart. This neckline is perfect for a more feminine garment, whether it’s a day dress or an evening gown.

3. Keyhole Neck

A keyhole neck refers to a decorative opening on a shirt that is typically round or teardrop shaped. For more formal garments, such as dresses or blouses, this opening is typically located on the back.

4. Square Neck

The square neckline is a refined and modest style; however, it’s also quite versatile and can be applied to various types of garments. It’s especially flattering for individuals with narrow shoulders, as the line opens across the chest and creates more of an hour-glass shape.
