- You have to have a shirt with a neck that’s open enough that it can be pulled down for nursing access.
- Since the neckline will be pulled up, the style of the shirt can’t have a sleeve seam like a dolman or kimono sleeve.
- You’ll also need a fabric tube of matching or contrasting fabric.
Sew an 1/8″ in from the edge of the fabric tube. Stretch the fabric as you sew to keep some stretch in the neckline.
Leave the edges open so you can insert the elastic.
The sew the rest of the casing to the neckline.
Sew the seam allowance down to one side.
This is what it should look like when it’s finished.
I also added some of the fabric tubing to the sleeves without the elastic.
Quick and easy nursing shirt.
