Stitching neck with bias flat facing
Stitch bias binding of width 1"to the neck keeping right sides together. While stitching ease the edge of the binding against the curve of the neck, at the same time stretch the other edge of the binding. Trim the seam. Clip the seam at intervals taking care not to clip the machine stitch. Turn the bias binding towards the seam and press. Stitch on the right side of the facing very close to the seam line. This is called under stitching. This holds the facing and the seam in place. Turn the facing on the seam line such that facing is not visible on the right side and it lies flat on the garment. Turn in ¼’of the other edge of the bias binding and stitch in place against the garment using small hemming stitch.
