When we left yesterday, we had completely assembled the bodice of New Look 6206. If you haven't done the adjustments to the back elastic, please do so now because the next couple of rounds will go by kind of fast.
Let's start this segment with the embellishments and finish out with the completed garment. I didn't use any with this dress because the fabric itself is adornment enough, but if you are using a solid color or you want your dress to be little bit on the jazzy side then this is the point where you would want to add those in. In Step 7, the instructions show you how to apply either ribbon, beads, sequins, or just whatever style choice you pick, to the dress. There are a lot of ways to style this dress with embellishments, but the simplest and prettiest would be to add it to the midriff as instructed.
If you are not going to do anything special to the bodice then let's begin with the skirt construction. I began with the back pieces. Match the notches and then the rest of your raw edges, then stitch.
Your next to final step is going to be tricky...(LOL) BUT not really. You have to connect the top to the skirt. This will be step 9 on the instruction sheet. With all thicknesses together pin the top to the skirt. I like to pin the seams and dots first, then fill in from there. Match the bodice small dot (that you made when you first began) with the small dot that is in the center of the skirt front.
|Stitched . See the center dot? This is what you want to keep an eye on to guide you to the V look.|
Lots Of Love
