    First, your videos on sewing are the best on the web. I have learned a lot. Unfortunately, I am a bumbling, beginner sewer. Is it possible, to make a video on attaching the neckline (round)interfacing (back/front) to a dress. I just don't get it. Please specify all things cleary, for those of us who are having major difficulty getting the hang of sewing.

    Kind regards,

    Great video, I like to also trim the seam allowance on the facing before attaching to the seam, this reduces the bulk at the shoulder seam.
