An all-in-one facing provides a clean and supportive edge finish for a sleeveless dress or blouse. Attaching the facing is a little different from sewing a neckline or armhole facing, though. Follow the techniques shown to install an all-in-one facing in a garment with a front or back opening (such as a button-front blouse, or a dress with a center-back zipper) or to install in a garment that goes on over the head, like a tank-style top.
If the pattern you're using doesn't include an all-in-one facing, it's easy to draft the facing pattern yourself. Find out how in this article by Daryl Lancaster from Threads #185 (June/July 2016).
