Hello! Could someone please help me!!!!
I’m trying to sew the neck band on to my dress (pleat front dress #104) and the instructions are absolutely hopeless! (to a beginner sewer at least). If someone has made this dress and understood how to do the neck band I would be really really grateful if they could post how they did it. (for a start i don’t even know what they mean by outer and inner neckband, as you only cut out 2 pieces from the pattern, and thats just enough to fit around the whole neck, so which is outer and inner?) I feel a bit hopeless!
Cheers!

    When you cut out the neckband pieces, was it supposed to be on folded fabric though so that you actually get 2 of each piece? The inner neckband would be the bit that sits on the inside touching your skin and the outer neckband the bit that’s visible to the world.
