2. With RST together sew the front of your bodice to the back at the shoulders. Repeat with the bodice lining
3. Next make your button loops- I did 4. Make a long drawstring and turn it right side out. Then cut it into 4 pieces.
4. Sew your bodice to the bodice lining along the neckline, armholes, and center back. Pin your button loops along 1 side of the center back- they should be tucked inside the bodice between the outer piece and the lining. Leave the side seams and bottom open.
5. With right sides together sew up the side seams of the bodice. The 2 outer bodice pieces will be facing each other and the 2 corresponding lining pieces will be facing each other.
6. Sew your skirt and skirt lining pieces together on each side. Leave the center back seam open
9. Sew up the back center seam on your skirt and skirt lining, but only go up part of the way or you won’t be able to get the dress on.
10. Now we’re going to attach the skirt to its lining. Slip the lining into the skirt right sides together. Remember how we didn’t sew all the way up? We’ll finish that seam right now by sewing the skirt to the lining RST on each side of the center back. Remember to tuck your last button loop in! (I forgot, so it’s not in the picture. It should be tucked in on the left side).
11. Now flip everything around until your skirt is right side out with the lining on the inside. Your skirt will now look like this:
12. Hem the bottom of your dress. I used my narrow hemmer foot. You could also do it by hand or fold over twice and top stitch.
