Turning facing

sewingsister2 | Posted in Patterns on

I’m making McCalls 3397. It has a self faced draped front which is stitched to the garmet around the armholes. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to turn the facing in. The pattern calls for leaving an opening at the shoulder (which I did). Now what? Has anyone had trouble figuring this out?

    I am thinking that I made a lined vest once where the shoulder seams were left open and the vest was turned inside out through the opening.  I cannot find a reference to this method.........still searching!

    This pattern has been reviewed on PatternReview.  Perhaps the member who made the top could help.  I have come up with a blank!

      I emailed McCalls and lo and behold, the instructions have been rewritten! I lost sleep trying to figure it out.Thanks for your help.

        So happy to hear there is still customer service that really can be of help.

        Hate it when something like this keeps me awake!

        Sweet dreams......
