To finish off the stitching, thread your serger tail into a needle with a large eye. Feed the tail through the stitching to anchor your stitching and prevent any unraveling.

Press the facing to the inside of the garment and tack the facing down at both shoulder seams, center front, and center back. This will prevent the facing from flipping out with wear. Next up, hems!
