Hi I've emailed Chloe at style arc for help but I really, really want to finish this dress over the weekend so hoping someone can help me with how to do this step.

I need to sew the yoke to the body of the dress. I have a separate back and separate front and then I sew the yoke on before putting the sleeves in and sewing up the sides, hemming etc.

Dress line view

You can see that the yoke sits underneath the bodice so the bodice and bodice binding are on the top.

Instructions say "Stitch the front shoulder section of the yoke to the front body from the armhole to the notch. Keep the neck band to the outer"

Normally I'm quite good but this time I can't figure out how to sew it so the bodice stays on the top.

Any thoughts on how to do this step would be very much appreciated. Susan

I'm not sure either. Maybe the next steps might provide a clue?

The next step is to sew in the sleeve so no clue there. I'm wondering whether I lay the bodice on top of the yoke - like as you see in the line drawing and stitch in the ditch along the bodice binding???

So a previous step told you to sew the binding on? In that case, I agree - stitch in the ditch.

It's saying to place the upper and lower front pieces together (the upper piece under the lower piece) and stitch together at the armhole. Then you can insert the sleeves.

Don't think about the words so much but just place them the way it appears in the line drawing. Baste first if still don't feel sure about it.

It's a cute dress!

I was thinking Baste also. I do that with some of the tricky Style Arc parts to help get my head around it before I sew

I've tried two similar RTW dresses.

In one, the bodice front was topstiched to the yoke on top of the binding seam.

In the second, basting/stitch in the ditch along the armscye would work.. The shoulder front was not stitched horizontally to the bodice.

The second dress was Roberto Cavalli and was way too wide in the neckline for me. I was surprised and delighted to see this StyleArc version!

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.
