Your dress looks *great* ~thanks for the review (and adding the tip about the neck facing)!

This dress looks nice and comfortable. I would try top stitching the facing down using the same color thread as the dress. I hate facings in knits because they always misbehave. Sometimes I just use a bias strip of the garment fabric, fold it inside and topstitch, or I'll fold in the seam allowance and stitch that down.
