Lydia’s Sweetheart Dress Tutorial May 12, 2014 – Posted in: dress, girls clothes, sewing, tutorial
|Taking a break with the one who can’t twirl yet!|
The contrasting edge on the bodice was the trickiest part. I had to redo this so many times! So, feel free to skip it if you want. I like the look of it with this dress and the straps because I was trying to use more orange accents, but it isn’t necessary at all. Mark 3/8″ away from the top edge of the bodice and open up your single fold bias tape Stitch the tape to the bodice along the fold line on the line you just drew. Stop at the center and fold it on an angle before starting to sew again from the center point.
Almost done- I promise!
Make 3-4″ slits at the back center of the outer skirt and lining pieces.
Two more to go! Stay tuned!!
