Lay the facings right sides together with the jacket. Pin the front edges in place, from neck edge to the lower edge and pin the lower edges in place.

Fold the seam allowances on the narrow edges of the neck bands down. Turn the allowances of the band joining seam onto the front. Pin the band pieces and the back neck edge to the facing and stitch, as a continuous seam (14).
