I’m going to make a dress from Burdastyle’s Lace gown #112 pattern, but I planned on altering the neckline as well as the back. It calls for back and front neck facings. Would It still need facings when I make the changes? high neckline and a V back at the waistline with no sleeves if that makes sense. The dress will be “interfaced” with silk organza. Does it still need to be lined with something else or can it just have an underlining. This is my first gown and will be a learning process with multiple mock ups. Any advice welcome!

    Hi, I’m not sure if I understand it correctly, but if you have 2 layers of fabric and the seam allowance is turned inside both layers, then you won’t need facing.

    However if you have a double layer of fabric because the top fabric is sheer, then you will need 3 layers of fabric to enclose the seam allowance in or a facing.

    I hope this helps :)

    You will need to mount the fabric on the organza interlining and treat the two layers as one for constuction. To hide all the seam allowance snad protect the edges, you will need to line the gown as well.
