The end result of your sewing adventure is a very cute jumper for your daughter! Thanks for sharing your ups and downs with this pattern. Like you, I disagree with Butterick's description of "very easy" for a lined garment with a zipper.

Love your creative construction techniques -- I chuckled as I read of your adventures. Those flounces are really cute.

The jumper is very cute. I agree, that you don't really need a lining for the fabrics you would be using to make a childs jumper. What I would suggest is to draft your own facing patterns for front (cut on fold) and back (with center back seam allowance). You will be applying the facing after the zipper is attached, and slip stitching it to the zipper tape. Make the facing at least 2 inches finished depth and interface it for more substantial support. You can tack it at the shoulders. When you understitch the seam allowance, make sure the facing and seam allowance are lying flat at all times. and follow the curve of the neckline as you stitch. In other words, you are not stitching a straight line, you are stitching a curve. You will be amazed at how nicely the neckline will roll.
