Step 5 Neck edge, armholes, and shoulder seams

Pin lining pieces right sides together with upper front and back. Stitch along neck and armhole edges, beginning and ending 2 cm (3/4 in) below each shoulder seam line. Trim seam allowances. Clip curves close to stitching. Turn lining of front (not back) to inside. Push front shoulder edges through the as-yet-unturned back shoulder edges, right fabric sides of front and back and of lining lie facing. Stitch shoulder seams of outer fabric and lining. Pull front (lying inside) slightly up and out and press seam allowances open. This will be easier if you slip the handle of a wooden spoon under the seams. Then stitch remaining open edges of neck edge closed. Pull front down out of back shoulder edges and the back lining will turn itself to the inside. Press neck edge.
