2. Close the dart in the front shoulder seam and secure with masking tape. 3. Place both shoulder seam stitch lines together and secure with masking tape.
4. Draw a 5cm seam allowance all the way round the neckline and curve slightly.

Overall, I am pleased with my final outcome even though my learning curve for the day was to understand what would happen if you cut too much off whilst reducing bulk and I have learnt to not do it again as I cam across too many problems whilst creating the retaining row and the fraying of the fabric. It's juts too much effort! It still turned out well and I am impressed that I have learnt a new skill to apply to the dress we will make for the fashion show.
