Welcome to day 2 of the sew-along! Thankfully, we get to head to the sewing machine today.
Place two waistband pieces wrong sides together and baste along the two long edges. Repeat for the remaining two waistband pieces. Set these aside.
Take one strap piece and fold one short end to the wrong side. Press.
Press the strap in half lengthwise. Open up the strap and press each raw edge in to the center fold.
Fold the entire strap in half lengthwise encasing the raw edges and press. Repeat for all four strap pieces.
Place the front bodice straps on the front bodice piece where you transferred the marks. Be sure the raw edge of the strap is aligned with the bottom raw edge of the bodice. Pin in place.
Starting at the bottom raw edge, topstitch each long edge of the strap to the bodice stopping 2" from the top edge of the bodice. Repeat for the other front strap piece and the two back strap pieces.
Note: The strap pieces will remain open for now.
