How to Attach the Collar and Neck-line Facing
Grade and notch the seam allowance. Trim the corner near the zip to reduce bulk. Turn the facing to the WS and pin and baste. Press.
With the back seam lines even (along the zip), hand-stitch the facing to the zip tape.
How to Make and Attach the Bow
Top-stitch all around the edge of the bow-to-be.
Put it in the dress, so that the raw edge is against the point of the neckline and sew it by hand to the facing.
I'd have included the photo but the Blogger software decided to hide those buttons. : )
I think that will have to do this week, because I have run out of time. Next week we'll make and sew the inset, and hem the dress. Then we're done!
Hope that helps!
Until next time, happy sewing!
