How did you finish it after turning right side out?

Cindy-Lou - I am making this dress with lining, had trouble turning, found your review but there are no pictures. Is there somewhere I can go to see the pictures? DBeran

I can't seem to find the pics accompanying this tutorial. I'm very interested in learning this technique. I noticed in the other comments, they have found the pics - am I doing something wrong?

This is an awesome review and the picture instructions are terrific. I made my first lined jumper in an hour. Thank you so much!

Thank you thank you thank you!!!! I have been looking for a pattern like this for ages! Now I have got my fabric pre washing as I type.. Cannot wait to try it. I hope I understand the step 8 bit ok.. *bites nails* UPDATE!:WOOOHOOOO!!! HOW FANTASTIC! I just finished it, and boy was it easy once I knew what I was doing! Absolutely incredible, that would have to be the easiest thing I have ever made lol. All went swimmingly until I got to the buttonholes. My automatic buttonholer has died *tears and plenty of them* lol Thank you so much

Thanks Sandy D... other than clipping curves, I don't know what to tell you. I'd try starching as you go with the pressing, and consider a clapper if you're using thick fabrics. I've typically been able to get it under control with clipping and pressing. HTH-- :)

This review is very helpful, thank you. I have a question maybe someone can help me. Is there a trick to avoiding all the puckering around the neckline/armhole area? I clipped the curves, but it puckers so much and it is tough to iron it out as well. Do you know any tricks for this? I had to top stitch it in order for it to lay flat, and that was a mission in itself!! Thank you!!!

I have this pattern and decided to line it and was having problems. Checked here for help on lining and found your instructions for lining this exact pattern! Thank you so much!

Wow, thank you. I can't wait to try this. I have a similar pattern for a top already cut out.

Thanks for the instructions. In the photos, I can not read the note on Step 3, Step 4,Step 8, Step 8.5, & Finished Product picture. Will you be kind enough to e-mail the descriptions on these pictures. Thanks a million. I have about pulled my hair out trying to figure out how to do this. Martha

How cute! Thank you for these detailed instructions and the step by step photos will be very helpful. I have this pattern and I can't wait to try making it fully lined.

Oops...double post.

Love this review...but am having trouble making it work with a boy's overall style similar to this pattern (jon-jon, overall). Any tips on how to make that work? I'm really trying to make a reversible garment, but think your tips here are applicable to what I'm attempting...I just lack the knowledge to make it work!

Hey Doc! Your tutorial is terrific! I forgot, what size does this paattern go to? I htink it's just for toddlers if I'm not mistaken. ~Connie

AWWWW!!! That is SOOOO CUTE!!! My mom has made this pattern two times now, but between me and you I think yours is much CUTER!!! I just LOVE the embellished pocket on the front, it's simply ADORABLE!!!

Fran, I detailed the instructions over in the 'Tips and Techniques' section so you could read them better-- enjoy!
