    I have completed the placket and connected it to the front. What I have ended up with is a weak spot at the location discussed in PREPARE THE TOP section 3. The fabric is ready to rip down the side of the placket. Did I do something wrong?

    Hm, I’m looking at mine, and it looks like I enclosed that raw bit with the tie. I don’t have my instructions handy, but can’t think of a reason not to do it that way. Would that solve the problem?

    Yes. This totally solves the problem and it is what I ended up doing after all. However, I wish I understood better what the intent was here. Thanks so much!!!

    I have a tute partially written on this dress. I had to stop as I realised I had made the placket button on the wrong side!

    I constructed my ties a little differently as I had minimal fabric thus not enough to cut all the tie pieces on the bias.

    Either way, I am fairly sure, at the step you are speaking of, I stitched a wee bartack over the neck tie-to-placket edge to re-enforce it.

    One the silk version I made, I hand sewed it firmly in place.

    Perhaps it is time I made another and finished that tute!

    I hope that is some help.

    Thanks so much, Nicole! I have completed the dress and will post some photos tomorrow, hopefully. The directions for the OS patterns are always so great. I was a bit disappointed with this step.
