Step 11: Sew the Neckline

-Sew along the neckline of the front bodice 1/4 inch from the top of the dress. Careful not to stitch directly into pins. You can remove the pins as you go- be careful not to forget any. Backstitch at start and finish.

-Retrace over your neckline in pencil, making it even and symmetrical.

-Sew along the neckline again, this time sewing 1/4 inch below the pencil line you drew. Backstitch at start and finish.

-Carefully cut along the pencil line, making sure not to cut through the last line of stitching you did.

-Sew again along the neckline at 1/4 inch from the top, and at 1/8 inch from the top, to make sure the pleats are held together.
