To determine if your fabric seams should
be pressed open or to the sides, do a
test on your fabric with small swatches
and press the seam to one side. If the
seam allowance shows to much from the
right side after pressing, you will want
to press the seams of your dress open
Follow the instructions and sew the
dress front and lining front.
Following the same pinning instructions
given for the dress front, carefully
pin the Dress Side Back to the Back
pieces, dress and lining.
Stitch both seams and clip the curves.
Do not press the seams yet!
Stitch the center back seam
up to the clip mark.
Using a long running stitch, stitch
from the clip mark up to the neck.
The running stitch acts as a stabalizer
to keep the back opening from
distorting as you are pressing
the curved seams.
Press the seams.
