Can anyone explain how to do attach and cut out a neck facing for this little girl's dress. The pattern call for lining which I don't think is necessary!

Thank you!

If I was making this dress, I would line the bodice or use a bias facing, with self fabric or bias tape.
In a childs dress, lining the bodice with a thin cotton such as broadcloth isn't any more work than cutting and interfacing facing pieces.

I'll try to answer the question you asked.

To create facings for the bodice, I create new pattern pieces for the facing.

1) Use the existing bodice pattern pieces to do this
2) Take the front bodice pattern piece and lay tracing paper over it. This is whatever transparent paper you usually use for tracing patterns.
3) TRACE exactly the curve of the neckline on the pattern piece.
4) DRAW a parallel line 3 inches from the line you traced
5) Connect the two lines at the left side and right side
6) Create the back bodice facing in the same manner
7) Sew the back facing and front facing together



Try to find a commercial pattern that already has facings so you can remind yourself what they look like. M2401 is an adult dress with facings. It's still sold now, I think.

I looked at your M6197. It has a zip in the back. so does M2401
if you mimiced M2401, you'd be fine.
