Neck & Open front facing of blouse…EEK!
Facings are going to be the end of my somewhat short & pitiful sewing career!! I do not know if somehow I am just completely stupid when it comes to sewing these things on or just what. Let me explain instead of blathering on. I am making this outfit “See & Sew” 5169 (I couldn’t upload the photo here or link). The neck and front facings are sewn together at the shoulders then attached to the blouse itself. Ok, fine. but when I look at the pattern illustrations (which, quite frankly, suck) it would appear that there is a line drawn at an agle where the facing would attach to the blouse’s neckline at the front. I hope that makes sense. When I went to sew the facings to the blouse, sure enough, the opening front facing (where the blouse will have buttons) appears too wide to attach. Is this what the illustration seeks to address? The aforementioned crappy illustration w/the angled line? Help!! I do not know if I am challenged in this area because it has just messed up my mind for two days now!!
Appreciate any and all feedback,
