I am making this pattern presently but am having concerns about connecting collar and getting into the dress with a back zipper. Would you help me understand this?

I am having a problem understanding how to attach the collar. The direction seems like it leave the raw edge of the collar and the bodice. Any suggestions?

Thanks for posting the review! I bought this a little while back and am just getting ready to sew. How did the measurements match up? I am always curious about the more fitted garments and adjustments needed. Although I typically wear a 6 off the rack, pattern sizes often put me in a size 8 or ten, since my hips are a little wider. Sadly, I've made more than a few things that I had to give away.

Your dress looks really great and is an inspiration to get mine out of my pattern stash and crack on with this one!

....and this look even better on Violet Elsie but she won't add a picture of herself wearing the frock to show everyone. A shrinking Violet Elsie

Thanks so much for making and reviewing this dress. I've had the pattern in my stash for a while, and have been *waiting* for someone to review it. Now I know it's something I could attempt, and hopefully get as good results as you did!
