    I am making the playdate dress for my almost one-year old’s birthday. I wondered if anyone has advice on how to finish the inside of the dress where it is joined to the yoke? I want it to be neat but am using a light wool so need an option that won’t add bulk. I could always just zig zag the edges but thought there might be a prettier way to do it!

    Hi Katie

    I haven’t made this dress yet but wonder whether a bound seam would work (like in the Sunday Brunch jacket).

    Hi, if you are using a very fine wool ,binding the neck seam may work well, however I would use a cotton,wider (homemade) binding and I would leave off the piping.

    If you really want the piping, I would suggest attaching it to the neckline and then overlocking them both to neaten seam, and then attach yoke as per pattern.

    Hope this is some help!

    I’ve just been working on this today. I didn’t use piping and I folded the raw edge under and stitched it to itself. It’s not my favorite way to finish a seam, but it’s a tricky spot. You spend all this time getting the yoke so perfect, that being left with a unsightly raw edge feels dissapointing. I can see seam binding working too, but haven’t learned that technique yet. I plan to do a Sunday Brunch jacket soon so I can.
