We will get the bodice started today and wrap it up tomorrow.
Place the back bodice pieces right sides together with the front bodice piece and stitch at the shoulder. Repeat for the back bodice lining and the front bodice lining. Press the seams open.
Pin a tab and tie combo right sides together to the front bodice between the notches.
The button tab should be right sides together with the front bodice and parallel to the bottom raw edge. Baste in place and repeat for the opposite side.
Pin the entire bodice right sides together with the bodice lining. You may find it helpful to draw in the seam allowance at the v-neck as shown.
Stitch along the angled back edges and around the v-neck. Also, stitch around the armholes. Leave the bottom and side seams unstitched.
Trim the seam allowances, clip the back corners and curves, and clip into the V at the front. Turn the bodice right sides out by pulling the back bodice through the shoulder.
Press well and topstitch along the back diagonal edges and around the neck. If sewing View B, topstitch over the collar edge. Do not topstitch around the arm opening yet.
That's it for today! We will complete the bodice tomorrow.
