Sew the Shoulder Seams on Main & Lining
With the right sides together, sew the front and back bodice together at the shoulders. Press the seams open.
Repeat for lining.
Sew the Neckline
Lay the main bodice down with the right side facing up. Place the lining right side down on top of the main. Pin with the cut edges lined up.
Sew the neckline and clip the curves. Alternatively, you can trim the seam allowance to half.
Understitch the Neckline
Open the bodice, lay flat and press the lining towards the center.
Understitch the neckline. Make sure to catch the seam allowance towards the lining.
Put the lining back inside the garment and press the neckline.
Next, we’ll move on to sewing the armholes and side seams.
