Don’t forget to clip the corners before you turn the bodice. It will help to reduce the bulk at the corners and make it look a bit better.
While you are clipping, I highly recommend that you clip the curves on the bodice and press the whole thing before you turn it. It will make it so much easier to press it and get a polished, finished look once you turn the bodice. Having a good pair of sewing scissors really helps with small snipping like this. I love my Fiskars scissors (affiliate link) that are spring loaded. Makes the job super easy.
Whew! We did it! We got through that pattern and despite the fact that we got a top and not a dress and that it was a bit confusing and I had to rip seams to get the top on the dolls (because I sewed the ruffle together the first time as the pattern says to do)…we love this top! It is so stinking cute!
Now that I know how to make them, I’m pretty sure I will make them again and not find them hard at all(and yet I never have, I like the easy stuff, like this simple reversible wrap skirt).
