Stitch darts in bodice pieces of top. Fold dart along center line and stitch up dart legs beginning at edges and working towards dart tip. DON'T back stitch at dart tip (this will cause puckering) simply taper off leaving long thread tails and tie them together in knot. Press dart intake towards center front and center back (refer to images one and two). Finish edges of fabric along center back, shoulder, and side seams using a zig zag stitch or serging on an overlock machine. Stitch the center back, shoulder and side seams together along seamline and press seam allowances open (refer to images three and four).
