Knit Facing

Knit FacingFacing is an extra piece of fabric found in garments and is used to finish raw edges plus add support to areas.  You'll commonly find them on necklines (with no collars) and armholes (when no sleeves are needed).  This tutorial covers how to sew in facing for knit garments.  Because we're dealing with stretchy fabric, the process for putting it in is different than woven facings and this example also uses no interfacing.  The thickness of the layer does provide support to these areas even without the interfacing.  Your neckline and armholes will look great, inside and out!

    My facing is just another knit fabric, like jersey. If you’re using a pattern, like I was, there will be a pattern for it. If you want to make your own, I would make it 10% smaller than your neckline measurement for the length and the width of my pattern was 1 1/2″. Hope this helps 🙂

    What kind of facing did you use on the knit top? Knit or woven? Bias? If it’s knit where can a person get the knit sew-in facing?
