Day 2
1. Let's measure to cut your bodice. Measure your full bust. Add 2.5 inches to that number. Divide that by 4. That is the width of the bodice that you want to use from the fold line out to under the underarms.
2. Measure from your shoulder down to where you want the end of the bodice to attach to the ruffle. Add one inch to that. Measure from the top of the bodice down to that length. That is the length you want to cut.
3. Measure from your sleeve down to your wrist, with your arm bent. Add 1 inch to that. That is the length of the sleeve from the armsysce down to the sleeve hem's edge that you want to cut out.
4. Measure from where your bodice will end/ ruffle with begin, down to where you want your top or dress to end. I chose slightly above the knee. It is 20 inches long. So I will cut a 20 inch long skirt from the pattern piece.
5. Cut out a your paper pattern pieces for the bodice, sleeve, skirt or top ruffle, front facing, back facing.
6. Cut your pattern pieces out using your fabric.
7. Cut out your interfacing piece. Cut around each interfacing piece 3/8 inches. This trims it down so the interfacing will not be in the seam allowance.
8. Come back tomorrow so we can start sewing!
