Ruby Dress: Attaching the Circle Skirt

The Ruby Dress Circle Skirt Constructions includes:

  • Attaching the Circle Skirt to the Bodice
  • Sewing and finishing the back seam
  • Finishing the hemline

 

Step 1: Attaching the Circle Skirt

  • RST (right sides together), pin the bodice to the circle skirt. Pin the skirt to the fashion fabric only (not to the lining)
  • Serge or zigzag the waist seam and press towards the bodice.

 

This is a good time to try on the dress and make any final adjustments.

Check the length and adjust if necessary.
