Monday I began a process for making Simplicity 2369 as a tutorial. I am posting pictures that shows the process for making this dress (long/short) or tunic. I chose to make the long dress View A. Here are the pictures so far and if you are sewing along with me, you'll find that this is a great pattern.
|First, after cutting out your pattern & material pieces, place all your markings & cut all notches. This is important as they will help tremendously during construction.|
|The instructions tells you to make the pleats in the front overlapping bodice piece. The 2 dots (marked with tailor's chalk) should be showing as you will need them later. If they rub off, reapply them so that you can see them.|
|This is what you should have after connecting the 2 pieces that goes to the front.|
|Now we have to sleeves. Sew the sleeves together at the sides with the notches, then sew the underarm together. Press the seams open.|
|Then connect them with the front and back pieces. Use the notches and bottom sleeve seam as a guide for aligning.|
