How to Finish the Neckline & Armholes with a Facing

Hey Everyone… The countdown has started!  Two days until I drive off to Orlando to teach at the National ASG Conference.  I’m super excited because I have two new classes… pattern grading and adjusting a non-stretch pattern for stretch fabric.  I didn’t realize how much I loved these two topics… Plus, I though I knew everything about adjusting a pattern for stretch, but I learned so much while I was working on this class 🙂   For my grading class for home sewers, I decided to make a deluxe kit with pretty heavy paper half scale sloper pieces and designed my own grading ruler that I’m printing clear plastic to go with the New Grading Workbook.

I’m leaving a few days early so I can spend time with my good friend Becky.  She’s been such an inspiration and has had so many amazing ideas to help grow J Stern Designs.  If you stop by the booth at ASG, it will be like a double bonus, you can meet her, and check out her spangle designs that she puts on Tees and such.    If you’re coming the the ASG Conference in Orlando, FL… Please come visit us <3

Anyway, I’m super happy that I had time to do a video to show you how to finish the top of the Abby Dress.    Please let me know if you have questions.  And, If you haven’t gotten your free copy of this pdf pattern yet… Join us in J Stern Designs Fitting and Pattern Perfection to get the coupon code 🙂
