Our Katrine dress calls for a neckline facing and bias binding at the armholes, which is a perfectly acceptable method of construction. But, another option is to do a full facing, connecting the neckline facing to the armhole facing. This gives more structure to the garment, and, in my opinion, it’s more comfortable to sew and to wear. In this How To, I show you how create facing pattern pieces from the existing pattern pieces.
