I am reading over the pattern instructions for this pattern before I muslin it. I am making View C.
Vogue 8648

For direction 11, it is talking about pining lining to the bodice. And then it says: "Stitch neck edge, breaking stitching at small circles and squares." What?? I don't understand what it means by breaking stitching. And the drawing doesn't help me.

Can anybody help me?

Thank you!

Breaking stitching means stop stitching at the small circle (which I suspect is at the right-angle corner of the bodice front) . Move one stitch length or so and resume. the small "break" will ensure that your corners turn nice and crisply. see below for an example, the small gap in the dashes is the "break"

To clarify, I would "fix" the stitching where you stop, and again when you restart, so the small break doesn't get bigger. Either backstitch one or two stitches, or use the "Fix" button on your machine.

Thank you so much! I don't have a Fix button, but I certainly had a backstitch button. Honestly, I have never even heard of a Fix button before.

I so appreciate you taking the time to explain this term to me. I was really just not getting the pattern instructions. I feel that I have so much to learn when it comes to sewing!

I don't know if you know this but that dress pattern is the one Susan K. does on craftsy.com, It is called couture dress making, I took the class, and learned a lot.

My goal this year is to use yardage up, and make a winter swing coat. Learn more sewing techiques, join more contests

Is that class more for advanced sewers? I wonder if it it's too advanced for me?

Definitely not too advanced for anyone who has learned most basic tasks. There were many steps I learned from the class and many I can't see myself every using (I hate hand sewing!).

I agree with Acient3 and Vicsguy. I took the class and learned so much. Susan is very thorough and doesn't assume any skills beyond those of a beginner, and she takes you step by step through making this specific dress.

"Stitch neck edge, breaking stitching at small circles and squares."

Along with the excellent guidance from kkkkaty, this might also be directing you to leave a gap through which you can turn the lining to the inside of the bodice. If the space between the circles/squares is more like a couple of inches (instead of just one or two stitches), that would be my guess.

Good luck!
