    Hello! I love all your work - we must have the same style, because I see your photos on almost all the patterns I’ve purchased :)

    I had a question regarding the “neck bands.” They look like they could also be facing, but the instructions don’t describe the same facing process as it does for other patterns, nor does it call those pieces “facing.”

    I was under the impression that these are in fact, two separate pieces which are added to the top of the dress. Unfortunately, this is my first intermediate pattern and I am comparing it to novice pattern instructions, so I would like to triple check.

    Could you (or anyone else feel free to chime in!) let me know your thoughts? Do the people who appear to have a wider neck line only that way because they choose not to add the neck band?

    Thank you!

      Hi, thanks for your lovely compliments!
      I do not have the instruction in front of me, but as I can remember it is a facing. If you stitch underneath the seam it will be perfect at the neck and the seam will not be seen on the right side. If you have to much fabric you have to cut some off and make small stitches at the wrong side together with the sleeve facing.
      Wishing you good luck with your dress!
