- Mark dots.
- Break stitching at the dots - back stitching at the dot.
- HINT: stitch just up to the the notch. JUST up to, but not beyond. Ideally there is a one stitch opening (approx ⅛”), on either end of the dot. This makes a tiny hole which acts as a hinge so once the seams are trimmed and pressed, the fabric will turn without any pulling or tugging.
- Leave as-is, the cowl neck will lie softly front and back.
- Secure at the left shoulder seam (on the back side) by stitching a short (½”) length, stitching through the folds along the shoulder line.
- Secure at the right shoulder (on the back side), by placing the layers at a slight angle to the shoulder seam, stitching through all layers along the edge in a short, ½” length.
- Or secure by hand or invent your own!
