Foreword: in the making of my patterns I used pictures from different projects so pleasedon’t be disturbed if the fabric prints don’t match
These are the pieces you should now have in front of you:Please set up your sewing machine for straight stitching with a seam allowance of ¼ inchunless otherwise stated.Start with the thin strips of fabric to make your ties. Determine how long you want themto be and if you prefer to tie them into a bow or rather into knots on each side. For theknots you need them shorter. I described that in the sizing chart.Here is a trick to have it easier once you turn your strips inside out. Take a safety pin anda longer piece of thread. Double the thread and knot it. Insert the safety pin and positionit as shown into the fabric strip: Now sew around the strip and leave the other small end open. Start on the small end yousee in the pictures above. Trim off the corners diagonally to prevent bulk once turnedaround.
This is how your strip should like now with the thread peeking out. The safety pin isinside the strip now. Grab it and guide it carefully towards the open end. Make sure not to pull very hard otherwise the thread might come loose. Turn your strip inside out until thesafety pin comes out. Cut all threads and lay safety pin aside.Trim off corners diagonally and press the strip. Repeat with other strip and lay both tiesaside.
To make the bodice pieces:
Take the two pieces to make the front bodice and pin sides and top edge. Leave thecurved bottom edge open (top edge is curved more than bottom edge). Don’t sew the back bodice piece yet!Sew around all three sides and trim off all corners.
