   4. All raw edges of the binding are concealed.
   5. The binding fits the edge to which it is applied without stretching or
        pulling the neckline.
   6. The comers are finished smoothly.
   7. The binding, when joined to self, is smooth and not bulky.
Facings   - A facing provides a smooth, inconspicuous finish for necklines,
front openings, and other edges. Facings are categorized as:
      - Shaped-- the facing is cut to fit the garment part to which it will be
        sewn, with grain positions identical or on the bias, and the finished
        width usually not more than three inches.
      - Bias-- cut in rectangular strips with the bias of the fabric creating
        the necessary shaping during construction and pressing
      - Extended-- cut onto a garment section, then folded rather than
        seamed to create the finished edge.
   1. Facings lie smoothly with no ripples or puckers.
   2. Facings are secured inconspicuously to the inside of the garment to
        prevent their rolling to the outside. The seam ditch is not visible on
        the outer edge of the garment.
   3.  The free edge of the Facing is finished appropriately to prevent
        raveling. Under stitching or topstitching serves as a means of securing
        the facing when necessary.
   4. In garments made of thick, spongy fabric, the facings are cut from a
        lighter weight fabric in an appropriate color.
   5. Facings in transparent or translucent fabrics are very narrow or stop at
        a design line of the garment.
   6. Most faced areas are interfaced. Bias facings are the exception and are
        not interfaced. The extended facing on a cowl neckline is not
interfaced, since that portion of the neckline is cut on the bias and is
        intended to drape softly
   7. Comers, points, or bias neck edges are reinforced with stay stitching
        or stay tape.
Inset Bands   - A shaped piece of self- or contrast fabric is set into the
garment in order to complete its final shape. The addition of the inset band
does not, in itself, finish the garment edge. Most commonly, the band is
made of two layers of fabric. The outer band is set into the garment and the
