Holly & Ivy Party Dress Sew-Along - Day 2


Holly & Ivy Party Dress Sew-Along - Day 2

This week we are sewing up the Holly and Ivy Party Dress pattern.  

If you haven't grabbed the pattern yet, you can get it in our Craftsy or Etsy Shop.  OR get the baby size 0-3 months for FREE in our Craftsy Shop.

Here is what we have covered so far:



Today we are going to sew up the bodice pieces.  You should have your front and back pieces sewing together for your main bodice and lining.

Place them right sides together and stitch around the neckline and down the back.

Now, to make the perfect shaped bodice you'll want to grab your scissors.  Make sure to trim all you corners.  This will help them to make nice points when you turn your bodice.

You'll want to clip along the rounded neckline about every 1-2".  If you are doing the square neckline or sweetheart neckline, make sure to clip into all the points.  This will help them to keep their shape.

Now, turn your bodice right side out and press it really well.  Making sure to push all corners and curves out.
