Cute dress and pattern

I bought this pattern because I liked the gored skirt and placket on the bodice. It also allows for different fabric and trim choices. I've been sewing for 40+ years but found the instructions for adding bias tape at the neckline to finish it difficult to follow; I gave up on the bias tape and created a lining for the bodice instead. I have an older chubby AG Doll, so I added 1/4' to the CB bodice and skirt. Still glad I bought the pattern and will make the dress again.

Not very clear instructions

This is a lovely little dress, but the instructions are not very clear. I’m an accomplished sewer so I managed to work it out for myself, but someone not so experienced might have trouble understanding
