Applying a facing is one of my favorite things to sew: after years of sewing and hundreds of them, I still get a kick out of putting a facing on. I think this is because each step is easy to do, and if done correctly, the facing will be perfect � every single time.
Another intriguing aspect of studying facings is learning how to make simple design changes to your patterns. One of the functions of a facing is to finish off the raw edge of a garment -- a bodice neckline for example. If you have a simple blouse that fits well, changing the shape of the neckline can result in a garment that looks new and unique. Making this type of pattern change and drafting the accompanying facing pattern requires no prior patternmaking experience -- you'll be amazed at how easy it is!
