On the right front, cut along centre of the dart at corner of neck edge, to 1 cm (3/8 in) below bottom seam mark (tie band joining). Lay one tie band on the right front, below corner of neck edge, and baste open end of tie band between the markings. Stitch the dart at corner of neck edge, below the marking, catching the tie band. Above the dart, press the seam allowance on the slanted front edge (not neck edge) to the inside, up to the top corner, then press seam allowances to the inside along the rounded front edge and along edge of hem allowance, up to left front edge. Turn under raw edges of pressed allowances and stitch in place. Press the darts forward.
