I am using Simplicity 5813 and making the romper. It has a collar. I would prefer if it didn't have the collar. Can I just omit the collar and finish the edge with seam binding? Or will it not be at the correct location in relation to the neckline?
Also, the bodice on this romper does not appear to be lined.. I find that a little odd?? Wouldn't it make sense to have a lined bodice to hide the seam that attaches the lower part, and the armhole seams?
I haven't sewn for years.. I would have been able to get through this on my own when I was more actively sewing.. I don't want to screw up..
The back of the bodice has an extension and buttonholes.. I would prefer to make little crocheted button loops and edges that just come together, since I haven't made buttonholes for years and I'd hate to make a mess.
I'm thinking if I just do a lining on the bodice part made of the same fabric, and forget the placket on the back and just sew the crochet loops, it will be finished quite nicely.. the rest I will just do french seams.
Does this sound reasonably do-able? Is there something I'm not remembering/thinking of?
Thanks so much!

Everything you are suggesting seems quite reasonable. I would make bias tape to finish the neck edge, not seam binding.

I would keep the placket to have an underlay and do the crochet loops in the seams of the placket. I wouldn't want baby's skin exposed and if there is no placket/underlay the loops and buttons will meet at center back with skin in between. Go for the placket and the lovely crochet.
