Showering w/ Strawberries

"With RIGHT sides together, pin a bias facing strip to neck edge, placing one edge of bias 1/4" over seam line, extending ends over front facings, as shown. Stitch entire neck edge. Trim seam and corners, clip curves.

d- Turn bias and facing to INSIDE; press. Turn under raw edge of bias and slip-stitch in place. "

I seem to be stumped on these two steps. Can anyone enlighten me as to what I need to do? Anything would be helpful.

Also sorry if this is in the wrong place, didn't know where to post this.

Not sure if I can be any clearer but I'll give it a shot.

So, you've got your bias binding which has probably got two folds in it. (If it hasn't, either press them or imagine them - one 1/4" from the top and one 1/4" from the bottom)

Make it kind of flat (don't iron it - you still want the folds there)

Put the right side of the bias against the right side of the neck fabric.

The top fold of the bias should be on the seam line of the neckline (which means that 1/4" of the bias is above the seam line, the rest is still laying on the bodice).

Stitch the bias to the neckline at that seam line.

Now flip the bias over to the inside of the bodice. (Your neckline seam will be nice and clean now)

After it's flipped to the inside, fold the remaining fold of the bias up between the bias and the bodice. (Now this will look nice and clean).

Now you need to stitch to stitch down that last fold.

Otherwise a google search should come up with lots of picture tutorials.
