Okay, so I have been working on this dress for over a month and I think I have finally finished!!!  (Well.... almost!!)

I have a couple questions though...

I sewed the neck facing and "armpit" facing the way the pattern suggested, but it kinda looks unfinished:

I read your other thread with the dress photo---good job! Just wanted to add words of praise and encouragement...and commend your attention to detail Wink  (I'm a bit of a fly by the seat of my pants seamstress though, so I am abstaining from giving you any potentially technically unsound advice!)

Stay stitching is to prevent the cut edge from stretching when the garment is handled during construction.  Never stitch from one edge to the other because it can stretch one side, always stitch from sides to centre front.  Stitch inside the original seam line so you never need to unpick staystitching that shows on the outside.
