Brooklyn, New Yo...
The instructions for the edging the neckline begin by telling you to trim the allowance, but aren't specific about how much. I figured it probably meant about half the width of the seam allowance (5/8") but I decided not to trim it until later. Instead, I began by pinned the bias strip to the neckline edge in from the neckline seam allowance at about half the mount of the neckline seam allowance.
**In this picture I have the end of the bias strip folded in, but I actually folded the end around the other side of the back placket to sew. You will see this in later pictures.
