separately for front and back and these pieces are joined by a

plain seam finish the outer edge of the facing by turning up the

edge and stitching it .Carefully tack the facing up the edge and

stitching it . Carefully tack the facing to the garment right sides facing

and seam lines , centre lines and notches matching . Trim and clip .

Turn the facing to the wrong side under stitch it to the seam and hem
