Our advice: To make the fabric along stitched seams stretch, sew details with narrow zigzag or with special stretchable stitches. To make the hem stretch, oversew hem allowance with special oversew stitches (overlock), and then sew it using double needle. This is also attachable to other edges that should stay elastic. These recommendations are not for industry.

Instructions:

1. Oversew front/back parts armhole allowances, fold them under and topstitch.

2. Tuck tie ends. Fold ties along the center and stitch on 0.7 cm (1/4") from the fold center. Turn tie into right side, then press. Sew ends.

3. Oversew shoulder edges. Sew shoulder seams. Topstitch shoulder seams along both sides from joining seam on 1 cm (3/8")width. Tuck ties into allowances.

4. Overstitch front stand-up collar with front drawstring. Overstitch back stand-up collar with back drawstring.

5. Sew stand-ups collars side edges to drawstrings, with unstitched spaces in drawstring left side seam, for elastic braid. Turn the collar into right side and press.
