I am knitting the fairisle dress Lidiya (Rowan Mag 48) on circular needles

 

Is it possible to knit all the way up the full length of the dress (perhaps casting off for shoulders), then go back and cut in the front and back neckline, plus armholes?  The neckline is slighly scooped.

 

*  Could I mark the neckline and stitch with a sewing machine zig-zag?  Would that provide enough stability to pick-up stitches?

 

*  How can I steek?  Is there a video available?
