So far, I've attached the waist overlay and lined the bodice (with white broadcloth.) The pattern calls for a full lining and the instructions use the tried and true method of sewing the bodice front and back at the shoulders, and then sewing lining to bodice along the neck and armhole edges and then pulling the backs through the shoulders to turn it right side out. The bodice ends up lined edge to edge and it's a very neat, no-fuss finish. Way to go McCall's!
In addition to getting started on this dress, I was able to finish the side seams and sleeve hems on the ruched knit dress. All that's left is the hem, which I will do by hand- hopefully later tonight. Stay tuned for a final preview.
How is your spring sewing coming along?
