    Thank you! That really helps!
    Thank you again to everyone who has responded to me. I’m going to order now…take the plunge soon! Feels like diving off the high board…to be overly dramatic about it!

    Hi,
    I sewed my placket today (which is better than it could have been but not perfect) and started the neck finishing. I think it’s supposed to be a bias binding but it is much much eassier for me to do as a bias neck facing. Has anyone else had difficulty with this? Am I correct that it’s supposed to be a binding? I have read the pattern a lot of times and don’t see the word facing there.
    I just feel like I don’t have enough space to do it that way. My tiny folds come unfolded.
    Guess I need to study up on this. I haven’t ever done a binding…as opposed to a facing which I have done.
    Thank you if you have time to help me understand this.

    Ok..to follow up on the above post…
    I studied up on binding vs facing and figured it out. I’m going to finish it up by hand and move on to the sleeves. Inspired by Lightening McStitch I’m doing French seams on the sleeves/side seams. Close to the finish, I hope!
