I stitch the band interfacing to the edge of the inside of garment, right sides facing. Press.
Right side of fabric with band facing attached
inside looks like this
Then, I stitch the front band to the facing along the top and down the front edge to about 2" from the bottom edge.
stitch top and front edge within 2" of bottom edge
I fold the jacket front inside the facing along the front edge a few inches. I "catch" the front inside the facings by continuing the front edge seam and stitching around the bottom edge about 2-3".

I want to better understand how to accomplish this tip. I'm confused even after reading and looking at the pictures. She does a great job sewing and I want to better understand this tip.

Joanisjosh- basically, you're stuffing the part under the seam, the right part of the shirt or whatever, into the facing and stitching around three edges. Then you will pull out what is stuffed from the pocket you've made. This work well with plackets on collars for shirts. It ends up smooth with the placket not hanging over the shirt at all. Hope this helps.
