If you missed the last part of our Samantha dress sewalong ‘Assembling the bodice and the skirt’, click here to catch up.
Today we are going to join the bodice and skirt. Take the finished bodice and make sure it’s right sides out. Turn your skirt so that the wrong side is on the outside and place it over the bodice, matching them at the waistline. We made an illustration to help you.
Make sure that the side seams align and secure them in place with pins. Stitch them together with a zigzag or your overlocker.
And yaaaay! Your dress is almost ready. Isn’t it exciting?
Now the only thing left is to make the tie belt and hem it. But we will do this in the next part of our sewalong, so stay tuned.
