progress on the Pearl

More progress on the Pearl! Actually I've progressed further than this today but am too tired to finish the update... forgive me.

#7. Press seams toward lining.

#8. With bodice right side out, understitch lining keeping the stitches as close to the seam as possible. Clip curves as needed. Press neckline.

#9. Pin neckline as well as sides and bottom of lining.

#10. With a scant 1/4" seam allowance, stitch casing at neckline. Following markings stitch drawstring casing lines at waist. Baste sides and armhole.

#11. With wrong sides together baste together bodice back lining and fashion fabric. (I used a basting spray.)

#12. Pin, stitch and press side back to back.

#13. Finish top edge of back skirt (with a zig-zag stitch). Run gathering stiches (I like to use three).

#14. Gather skirt back to fit back bodice. Pin, stitch, press.

Again to be continued...
