    I make this dress and I have to say two thinks about the pattern: 1. The armholes are too wide , I cut at list 3 sm to fit them. 2. The neck bands for my opinion is not nesessey to use , because, if you sew them to the bodys parts the neckline become to hay in to the neck and the dress become very uncorfotable to were. In this case I make it without them. I also make the dress with full lining with saten fabric – it hase better l" line" and fit better.

    I had a question regarding the “neck bands.” They look like they could also be facing, but the instructions don’t describe the same facing process as it does for other patterns, nor does it call those pieces “facing.”

    I was under the impression that these are in fact, two separate pieces which are added to the top of the dress. Unfortunately, this is my first intermediate pattern and I am comparing it to novice pattern instructions, so I would like to triple check.

    Could r anyone let me know your thoughts? Do the people who appear to have a wider neck line only that way because they choose not to add the neck band?

    Thank you!

    I added this question to a few people’s project photos as well. :-)
