On the center front, fold folded facings to outside and pin to neck edge. This sandwiches the collar between the self facings/placket and the bodice front (refer to image one). Stitch across the folded facings at neckline to keep in place. Now you need to prepare the bias to finish off the neck edge. Fold the bias strip in half lengthwise and fold each edge towards the center fold (refer to image two). Pin the prepared bias to the unfinished neck edge, starting at each end of the self facings/placket. The center fold of the bias strip should line up with the neck edge (refer to image three). Top stitch the bias in place and flip the self facings/placket to right side and press (refer to image four).
