Today’s another easy day! You’re going to sew the bodice to the skirt and the bodice lining to the skirt lining! This is pretty straightforward: pin the skirt to the bodice, “right” sides together. Even though the bodice lining and bodice are sewn together, they’re separate at the bottom, so make sure not to catch the bodice lining when you pin the bodice to the skirt. Then repeat for the lining–sew the skirt lining to the bodice lining, “right” sides together. The seams will only show on the “wrong” side.

pins to perpendicular to the seam you’re making

Once everything is sewn together, press the seam up toward the bodice. I do this by first pressing over the seam, then pressing the seam down, then pressing it up. Finally, I press on the “right” side of the fabric.
Tomorrow, we’ll put the zipper in, then you’ll have another day off to catch up before moving on to the finishing steps.
