During sewing, facings can help to support the garments, especially if the facing is not interfaced. After the facing is sewn on, you will need to clip into any curved areas for the facing to lie flat. Under stitch the seams to the facing, close to the seam line. After finished sewing, you will want the facing to roll a bit to the inside of the garment so that the seam does not show on the outside.
