Pin lining pieces right sides together with bodice front and back pieces. Stitch along neck edge and armhole edges, beginning and ending 2 cm (3/4 in) below each shoulder seam line. Trim seam allowances. Clip curves close to stitching. Turn lining on back pieces (not front) to inside. Slip back shoulder edges between the as yet unturned front shoulder edges – right fabric sides of front and back and of lining are facing. Stitch shoulder seams of outer fabric and of lining. Pull the back which lies inside and the lining up and out slightly and press seam allowances open. This will be easier if you slip the handle of a wooden spoon under each seam. Then stitch remaining open edges together. Pull backs down out of front shoulder edges and the front lining piece will turn itself to the inside. Stitch lining at neck edge and armhole edges to seam allowances, as far as possible, close to seam. Press neck and armhole edges.
