Step 4 Front

Mark slash line for slit on left front half. If you are working with striped fabric, centre bottom end of slit (marking) exactly on a stripe. Iron a strip of inter-facing, about 2 cm (3/4 in) -wide, to wrong side of fabric, over slit marking. Slash slit open from upper edge to 2 mm (a scant 1/8 in) before -marking. Spread cut edges open to a straight line and stitch right sides together with one lengthwise edge of fastening band, stitching as narrowly as possible at end of slit. Match stripes if you are working with striped fabric. Press seam allowances onto band. Press allowance on other edge of band to inside – band should be exactly 5 cm (2 ins) wide (twice the finish-ed width). Fold band in half lengthwise and press, wrong side facing in. Unfold band again. At right edge of slit, trim away pressed-under -seam allow-ance on inside edge of band, as far as end of slit. Then baste inside edge next to joining seam.
