TO MAKE UP

Press very lightly on wrong side using a warm iron and damp cloth. Fold over neckband at row of holes and stitch down on wrong side to form picot hem. Using a flat seam join border to main part stitching along lower edge and sides, easing in fullness at corners. Stitch along ends of border on right side of work where they overlap Fronts. Stitch over­laps for 1 inch from lower edge of Fronts on wrong side of work, thus forming slots for arms. Thread ribbon through rows of holes on yoke and Fronts and through hem at neck.
