Today is a pretty short day! We’re going to sew up the side seams, regardless of which version you’re sewing up. If you prefer a more snug fit, but didn’t opt to size down, this is a good time to try on your bodice. 🙂 Remember that Blythe is intended to be a loose, swingy fit. If you use a good quality fabric with excellent drape, it will fit as intended. Also be sure to try it on “dressed up”, whatever that means to you! Styling a garment as if you were leaving the house can make it look and feel different. If you’re still hoping for something tighter, now is a good time to take a bit more in at the side seams.
- seam allowance is 1/2″ and is included on pattern pieces; be sure to take the full 1/2″, especially if you’re using a serger.
- you can go back and stabilize/add clear elastic to the shoulder seams if you’d like
- if you added/subtracted length to the front bodice, be sure to do so for the back bodice as well! If your side seams aren’t matching up when you go to sew today, this is likely why!
