It is the final day of the London Dress Sew-Along!! We only have a few steps left to wrap things up, so let's get started. As usual, use a 1/2" seam allowance unless noted otherwise.
With the skirt wrong side out, insert the bodice inside the skirt. Pin the bodice to the skirt right sides together all around aligning the side seams. Be sure that the front of the bodice is facing the front of the skirt (with pockets). Adjust the basted bodice overlap if needed to align seams.
Stitch the bodice seam and finish with a serger or zigzag stitch. Press the seam allowance down and topstitch along the skirt edge.
Hem the bottom of the dress by folding the bottom edge toward the wrong side 1/4" and again another 1/2". Press and stitch along the inner folded edge. Be sure not to sew the box pleats shut!
Mark button locations on the right side of the bodice to align with the buttonholes. Sew four buttons on the right side of the front bodice.
Pat yourself on the back for a job well done!! I have a feeling you've just made a little girl very happy!
