PATTERN ASSEMBLY

I always start off my trimming off the bottom and right side of the pattern page. I find this makes it way easier when assembly PDF Patterns. To fully assemble the pages together, match up the quarter skirts with the same numbers (pictured above). 

First assemble your pattern pages in rows and then piece those rows to each other, completing the number circles. Tape all your pages securely. 

For your skirt waist template, trim off the top and left border of your page and cut along the curved line that matches your waist measurement.

If you are between sizes, go for the smaller one. 

SEWING INSTRUCTIONS

For the bodice of this dress you will need the following pieces cut
1 Front Piece cut on Fold
2 Back Pieces
1 Circle Skirt (See Below)

Refer to the Circle Skirt Tutorial for cutting instructions. 

DRESS BODICE

With your back pieces placed right sides together, sew down the center back seam. Press seam to one side.

Placing right sides together, sew your front piece to your back piece at side and shoulder seams.

Cut out four pieces of 1/4" elastic. Two the length of your shoulder seams and two the length of your side seams. Place each piece of elastic on its corresponding seam and sew in place. Do not stretch the elastic as you sew, you want it to lie flat against the seam. 

SKIRT

While your circle skirt is still folded up make a snips at the front/back of your skirt (it will be the side that was parallel with your selvage) and another snip at the side. 

While making this this tutorial I accidentally cut my waist too big on my skirt. If you do this just trim away the excess on the sides of your circle skirt and sew up again to make it the correct measurement. 

Match up the notches on your skirt with the center front, center back and side seams of the bodice piece. Pin and sew around the waist attaching the bodice to your skirt. 

Cut a piece of 1/4" elastic the same measurement as your waist + 1". Pin the elastic around your waist seam overlapping the edges. You don't want to stretch the elastic, you just want it to lie nice and flat. Stitch is place. This will help hold up the heaviness of the skirt. 

Overlock around the armholes and neckline. Press to shrink back anything that might have stretched out. 

Turn under all raw edges ( Neckline, armholes and hem) a 1/4" and stitch using a narrow zig zag stitch. 

This is my absolute favourite style of dress to sew and wear! It can be dressed up or down. This photo has it without the crinoline for a more casual style!
