Hi!
I am hoping someone is around right now to help me out..
I am making a little romper for a baby..
I decided not to make the collar.. and instead I was just going to make a plain neck..
The pattern does not ask for a lining for the bodice portion..
So I was going to make a lining in same fabric..
I cut and sewed the bodice.. same as the front..
Added the tiny sleeves into the front/back..
Now I want to sew the bodice onto the main piece..
So..
I will sew right sides together.. at the neckline, right????
And I was thinking I would turn up the bottom hemline of the bodice-lining and then maybe handsew it to the inside, covering the seam, which attached the main-bodice to the bottoms..
Perfect, right???
Except..
What about the armholes????
I can't remember how to do ANYTHING without a dang pattern anymore!! It has been 6 years since I've sewn anything!! Help!!!

Or should I sew the bodice lining ALSO to the sleeve (please, NO!)

Or..........
Should I just say to heck with the dang bodice-lining.. and find some bias tape or seam binding to sew around the raw portions of the seams at the sleeves and the waist-join...

I SOOOO have to get this finished TODAY.. I haven't even started on the little jacket, hat and booties!!!!!

Thanks for any help!!!!

Wait..
Would my dilemma be solved if I also added sleeves to the lining.. and then I would only have to hand-sew the sleeve to the sleeve-lining at the hem of the sleeve.. and tack at the armhole.. and tack at the shoulder..
??
I am just wondering if then the sleeve might be too tight with the extra fabric..
I will ask mother to go and measure baby's arm..

It's hard to picture it without a photo, but there are lots of romper tutorials online, do a search and maybe one will be similar to what you're making.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

What I suggest you do is sew the lining to the bodice, wrong sides together. You still have to finish the neck and incorporate the lining in the neck finishing. As to the armholes, don't sew up the sides, but do the armholes the same way--finishing the bodice and lining at the same time.

HTH, without a picture.
