Hi, I am making a dress from a pattern that has facings, but I am going to fully line the dress instead of putting the facings in. I would like to put something pretty around the neckline as it is quite a plain style and I am making it in one colour. Is is possible to add bias binding around the neckline to a lined garment?
Also I want to keep the interfacing in the garment to retain its shape. I was thinking to cut the shape of the interfacing and fuse it to the lining pieces. Is this the right thing to do?
