Now stitch the outer fabric and lining together around your neckline or waistline using your normal seam allowance.
(My neck line is on the left hand side of the photo)

Using a 5mm seam allowance join the fabric together where the zipper will be.
In this case it is both sides of the centre back of my blouse. You can see I have serged my fabric to keep the seam allowance small and finished at the same time.

    You can do your side seams before or after the zip. If you do a rough fitting of the garment first, then do the zip and then do side seams to get the fit perfect.

    Not sure what you mean about the facing?? But treat the facing as you would the lining, Finish the facing before you put it in.

    This is so great! I just wonder how I sew the side seams? Do I sew the after this or before? And do I sew them on the facing and fabric at the same time?
