We finished yesterday with the collar binding. The first step today is to turn the button band top corners right side out. When you do this, the unfinished ends of your collar binding will end up neatly inside the button band. Fold the rest of the button band in half length-wise and press. I used my hem gauge to make sure I kept a uniform width all the way down.
Top-stitch around around all sides of your button bands, making sure to catch the back side of the band in the line of stitching closes to the shirt fronts.
Hem your shirt or dress, using your favorite method. I did a narrow hem that ended up being about 1/4-inch wide. Then, you will need to do your closures. I did buttons and buttonholes on Jenna's dress and snaps on the shirt I made Allie. I think I will do snaps on this dress for Allie too, but I don't have enough tonight, so I'll have to get them tomorrow and give you some modelled pictures this weekend.
Thank you so much for sewing with me! It was fun. Show me your shirts and dresses too, please :)
