Before you begin, you will need to unpick the pleating threads for 1 1/2" at the back opening edges for all sizes. The Neckline Blocking Guide has marks for the different sizes included in the pattern. You will use the neck edge line that matches the size of the dress you are making. Note that it has marks for neck edges, sleeve seam lines, center front line, and the back openings.
Place the Neckline Blocking Guide over your pinning board, placing the pleated neckline at the edge line that matches the size dress you are making, then match center front, back edges, and sleeve seams. Pin the dress to the Guide and board.
Now evenly fan out the pleats, and tie off the pleating threads. Some people like to leave the top holding row loose so that it is easier to put the binding on later.
YEA! You have completed your Wee Care Dress!
