Step 8 Face upper edge of dress

Pin ­facing (with inner bust pieces) right sides together with neck edge of dress. At zip opening, turn facing back, approx. 5 mm (3/16 in) before edge of opening, and pin to upper edge. Turn allowances of dress on open­ing edges to outside and pin to neck edge, over facing. Stitch along neck edge, catching straps in front and leaving seam open in back to insert straps between each seam mark and section seam. Turn facing and allowances on side opening edges to inside. Press edges. Insert straps into openings in seam on back and pin in place. Try on dress to determine correct strap length. Then stitch seam closed, first turning facing out again. Now turn facing to inside and sew to zip tapes. Pin joining seams of bust pieces together exactly. Turn facing up and sew seam allowance to­gether, close to seam. Turn facing down again. Sew lower edge of ­facing to seams.
