I need help again. instructions read, stitch 1/4inch from unnoticed edge of facing. Press under edge along stitching. Am I supposed to stitch the piece after I fold up the 1/4 inch or just run a stitch line to mark where to turn up? There is a lining in this bodice. thank you so, so much. this is a dress for granddaughter and I want it to look nice.

The stitching line marks where to turn it.

Stitching along the edge can help press under rounded edges. For example, sometimes a pattern will cal for stitching 1/4 away from the edge of a full skirt, to facilitate turning the entire hem under afterwards. :)

What is the next step after stitching 1/4" and turning under? Stitching to another piece of the garment? Top stitching?

If it to eliminated fraying, you might be able to fore go the turn under and trim next to the stitching with pinking shears.

I think it is to turn it under and stitch to finish the edge of the facing.
Most of the time I just serge that .25" off.
