This is supposed to be super easy but i am stuck on the first seam! And so were the staff at my local fabric store….the first step is to sew the front to the back at the side seams…but the front piece is about 2" longer than the back piece…what do I do? If I match the bottom hem lines and “notch”, the top "notch"doesn’t match up, nor the armscye/sideseam point. If I match up the top, the bottom of the front is 2" too long. I double checked my pattern, tracings, etc. They are all correct. Anyone out there made this recently?
I have decided to run a basting stitch from the armhole to the waist on the front, then “gather” so the front and back match up. Sew the side seam, then add the elastic ruching. I figure the 2" extra on the front = a B cup??.
