Pay attention to the machine line: make it as flexible as possible so that it does not burst. We grind the chest tucks. Iron down. We sew shoulder cuts, putting tape to avoid stretching the seam.

We blow out, forming a edging from the main part 1 mm. Ironing. If a semittance appears through the fabric, we cut it close to the stitch. We put the lock, connecting the shoulder allowance with facing. We measure about 13 cm from the waist down along the back allowance, from this mark we scribble down to the end. We bend the seam allowance on the inside of 1 cm, impose a "zipper" on top and stitch it. We lay the finishing line: the first 0.5 cm from the teeth. The second is 0.2 cm from the edge of the zipper. We add 3 cm from the end of the line and cut off the excess from the “zipper”. Close up the "tail" with a piece of basic fabric 6 cm * 8 cm.
