4. Turn a single fold of 6 mm to the wrong side of facing on one short and two long edges of facing. Tack and finish by edge stitching. This is edge finishing the facing.
5. Place the right side is facing to the right side f garment. Tacking lines marking the opening should lie on one another.
6. Put pins through tacking lines.

8. Either backstitch or machine stitch 6 mm away from the centre tacking line along both sides. Slope stitches inwards at the base to form a "V" shape.
9. Cut or snip through the line of tacking between around the stitches, close to the "V".
10. Turn the facing to the wrong side. Pin and tack around the opening then press.
