Line up and pin the facing right sides together with the neck edge, catching the collar between the two. At the zipper opening, turn ends of facing back, approx. 5 mm (3/16 in) before the marked seam line, and pin to neck edge. At opening edges of dress, turn allowances to outside and pin in place, over facing. Stitch along the neck edge. Turn facing up and top stitch together with the seam allowance, on the right side of the facing, along the joining seam, as close to seam as possible. Turn the facing and opening edges to inside. Sew facing to zipper tapes and to shoulder seams.
