Fold edges, for stitching of the edges (e.g. at the hem) use a twin needle. Stitch along the right fabric side using two upper threads and one under thread, using the straight stitch setting. In this case the under thread will appear as zigzag stitch. The result will be that the fabric will not stretch when sewing and the seam will be elastic. (a)

Shoulder seams
Position front piece on top of the back piece, right sides facing (seam 1). Trim allowances, neaten altogether and fold and press inwards towards the back piece. (b)

Neckline / Facing
Position the front facing onto the back facing right side to right, stitch shoulder seams (seam 2). Neaten edge. ©

Pin facings onto the neckline right side to right, shoulder seams meet. Baste trimming and stitch. Trim allowances and cut in to make the neckline more flexible. (d)

Side seams
Position front piece onto the back piece, right sides facing, baste side seams (seam 3) and stitch. Trim allowances, neaten altogether and fold and press inwards towards the back piece. (f)
