First stitch the right shoulder seam on the neck facing. Pin the facing to the neck edge of the dress, right sides together. Turn the facing ends back, 5 mm (3/16 in) before the zipper. Fold the shoulder seam allowances, with the zipper, to the outside and pin. Stitch the neck edge
of the dress to the facing.
Trim the seam allowances narrowly. Turn the facing and the slit allowances to the inside.
Press the neck edge. Sew the ends of the facing to the zipper tapes by hand, with small stitches. Loosely sew the facing edge in place, with herringbone stitches.
