Almost all of the tutorials I share use some form of facing. However if you are new to sewing, or new to self drafting maybe you find yourself a little lost when it comes to facing. Honestly it was one of the things I always wanted to skip when I was first learning to sew, and interfacing? Forget it! Who needs it I would ask. Well let me tell you I have long abandoned that foolish thinking and have come to realize how easy and necessary both facing and interfacing can be. Hopefully today's sewing lesson will clear the air for you as well.
Start with your bodice piece. (need help drafting one? check the drafting lesson)
There you have a nice finished and faced neckline and sleeve opening.
Well I guess it is time to fall in love with the inside of your garment as well as the outside. Don't you just love what a little facing can do?
