Today we will finish off the pocket and the front of the dress. Note: All seam allowances are 1/2" unless noted otherwise.
Place the pocket back right sides together with the pocket front and fold the front of the dress out of the way.
Stitch across the top of the pocket and finish the seam.
Refold the dress so that the bottom is out of the way and pin across the bottom of the pocket.
Stitch the bottom of the pocket and finish the seam.
Lay everything out flat again with the right side of the center front up. Baste along the side seams and panel curve at 3/8" from the edge above and below the pocket opening. You will be sewing through all 3 layers. Repeat for the other side of the pocket.
Pull the pocket opening toward the center of the dress and pin out of the way for the next step.
With the center front right side up, pin one side panel right sides together along the curve as you did for the back panels. Pin at the top, bottom, and notches. Then pin in between without stretching either piece. Stitch along the curve making sure not to catch the pocket opening in the seam. At the pocket opening, you will be stitching through the pocket back and side panel only. Stitch slowly and maintain the 1/2" seam allowance. The idea is to stitch as closely as possible to the pocket opening to create the "hidden" look. All done for today!!
