Coat Sew-Along: Bodice Back and Collar
Okay! At this point, you'll have the center back seam stitched and the darts sewn in your bodice back.
Once you have the stay stitching in, clip to the stitching, about every 1/2". This will help immensely in the next steps.
Now for the video component! This will show you steps 7 and 8.
After you complete this part, you'll press your neckline seam up. Press the overarm sleeve seam open.
Finally, stitch your underarm sleeve from wrist to waist. Reinforce the underarm area by stitching again 1/8" away from your seamline, in the seam allowance. Trim close to this second line of stitching, to give more room for movement.
Please let me know if you have any questions! Next up: the skirt and pockets!
