I was examining the waist facing of a skirt, trying to figure out how they machine sewed the edge along the zipper, rather than hand-sewing (which most pattern instructions have you do). It's actually quite simple, and saves a step of threading a hand sewing needle. I suspect it will work for neck facings for tops and dresses too!
Sorry that some of the pictures are blurry--I don't have the best camera for close-ups!
