Dressmaking- Part 3

I have now finished the top half of my dress completely by adding interfacing to the neckline area on the back panels of the dress. 

After doing this I placed the back panel, right sides together, to the lining of my dress. I decided to use the same fabric as the outer material for the lining:

I have sewn where the pins are placed in the pictures above and clipped the curves:

After doing this I turned the panels the right side out and pressed the seams to give a neat finish:

I lined the notches on the back panel sleeves to the notches on the front panel sleeves. Next, I pinned the linings and the material pieces together separately and have sewn them, making sure to press the sleeves after. 

I have then sewn the side panels on the front of my bodice to the side panels on the back of my dress:

This is the completed design of the top half of my dress:

Working on the skirt next, I will let you know how I get on when it is done. 

Bye for now, 
Heather :)
