So it's time for Part 2 of our sew-a-long Christmas Party dress with Amanda.
Pin the lace to the bodice lining, right sides together. Use pins to mark where you need to sew around armholes and neckline. See photograph below.
Sew with a sewing machine, trim seam and then under stitch in to the lining as far as possible, as the photo shows.
Follow steps 6 and 7 on the sewing pattern. I loved sewing this part. It was a great sewing moment when you say…"Ahhh! I get it now!"
The bodice is so neat and precise. The back matches perfectly too. It is the pulling through the shoulder seams that seem to give it that perfect look. It does say it is a ‘Very Easy Vogue’ pattern and I am inclined to agree with that. Simple but perfect so far!
