I think NiceGirl may be right - handstitching may be the only way to get the lining attached correctly. Since I was copying the dress, I wanted to do it EXACTLY like the original- but I guess that wasn't necessary...

Is there a reason the lining has to be attached at the bust? If you fully line the bodice and the skirt the lining could hang free of the fashion fabric. If it felt like things were going to shift around too much, you could connect them with a few hand stitches in the seamline at the bodice/skirt point. Cute dress!

Thanks, everybody. I really appreciate it. If anyone has any tips on attaching the lining at the bust, please let me know!

I think you did a fabulous job. I really like the polka dot one also. Too cute!

Well, if I could squeeze into that cute black and white polka dot, you could just send it on to my house. I think the dresses are gorgeous!

I think you did a good job copying that dress. The polka dot on is my favourite.
