On upper edge of band, press seam allowance to inside, between slit marks, and at slit marks, tapering pressed-under edge toward edge of seam allowance. Gather back edges of band each to 8 cm (31/4 ins) wide. For the gathering over the side seams, gather band along marked stitching lines to 10 cm (4 ins). Lay band on neck edge of dress, with wrong side facing right side. On back opening edges, stitch along seam line and stitch next to edge of seam allowances. Baste band to neck edge, leaving band loose between slit marks. Pin gathered band over side seams and stitch in place, along seam line.
