Many sleeveless dresses and tops with facings present sewers with an interesting problem. It can seem almost impossible to cleanly finish both the armholes and the necklines while sewing the shoulders in place as well. It is especially tough to do this if you want to finish something without any hand-sewing. Which is why I have decided to share with you all a way to sew an "all-in-one facing":http://www.burdastyle.com/terms/all-in-one-facing, and have illustrated with my version of the Azalea dress. The Azalea dress presents an even more interesting problem, with its side zip as opposed to a center back zip. To begin, notice that I have sewn the body and bodice of the dress together and sewn the facing pieces at the right side seam (Right when worn. The left side of both the dress and the facing are left open to later insert the invisible zipper.
