Hi. I’m making the above pattern and there’s something I don’t quite understand.
I’ve sewn the lining and dress together at the neckline and armholes, trimmed, clipped and turned the lining to the inside and pressed, and also sewn the lining to the zipper band.
The pattern then proceeds to say, “pin skirt joining seams of dress and lining together exactly” (the dress has a bodice joined to the skirt high up under the bustline). It’s the next instruction that I’m stumped on: “work from right fabric side of dress to stitch in line of skirt joining seam”.
The only interpretation I can put on this is that I’m meant to sew on the outside of the dress EXACTLY in the seam that joins the bodice to the skirt. I’ve never come across such a thing before. Can anyone tell me if that’s what the instructions are telling me to do?
