Bodice

Close the back pleat, stitch in place at the neckline.

Place back and front bodice parts together wrong sides in and sew shoulder seams. Finish the edges separately and press seam allowances open.

Place back and front right sides together and sew side seams. Finish the edges together and press towards the back.

Finish the lower edge of the bodice, then turn up 1.2 cm (1/2”) and stitch down 1 cm (3/8”) from the folded edge.

The bodice is finished – the shoulder seam allowances are on the right side.

Overlays

Finish the vertical edges and lower edges of the overlays, then fold the vertical edges 1.2 cm (1/2”) and stitch down 1 cm (3/8”) from the folded edge. Repeat for hems.

Place the overlays right sides together and sew the shoulder and side seams. Finish the shoulder seam allowances’ edges separately and press them open.

Finish the side seams’ edges together and press them towards the front.

Finishing the armscyes

Place overlays right sides towards the wrong side of the bodice, align the shoulder and side seams.

Sew bodice and overlays together at the armscyes, trim seam allowances to 0.5 cm (1/4”), notch the curves.

Pull the overlays to the right side, press armscyes.

Pin the overlay to the bodice at the neckline, aligning the edges of the overlay with the corresponding notches. Sew the overlays and bodice together at the neckline 0.5 cm (1/4”) away from the edge.

Finish the neckline with a bias tape.
