Your dress looks great! I am making this now and I am using your method for lining the bodice, but I'm stuck. I can't turn it to the right side to understitch the armholes. I have the whole neck, the armholes, and the back seams sewn but I can't turn it right side out. Can you help? Nadine

Hi, Nadine. I hope I can help! I'm assuming that you have the bodice lying flat, inside out with the bodice front next to you, with the neckline and armholes sewn, but not the side seams. You should be able to reach in between the layers of the fashion fabric and lining and grab the back and pull the bodice through the shoulder seam area until the whole thing is right side out. Let me know if you still have problems. Good luck!

Thanks Karen. I realized that I was supposed to leave the lower back seam open until I had pulled each back piece through the shoulder. Once I did that I then sewed the back seam on the bodice and also on the lining. Now the only problem I see is the ties seem to be a bit heavy and they pull the bodice back. I should have made them narrower. I also noticed the armhole is a bit big and a bit of my bra shows. But I also needed to make a sloping AND a forward shoulder adjustment which would make the armhole a little smaller. Hopefully my next try will be better. Thanks
