A Dress for Meg - 4 - Assembling the Bodice
Here is the bodice with the side seams done. I have done more felled seams.
Also on the sleeves I have done felled seams. I couldn't have managed doing it on sleeves that are any longer because you have to work down a tube, and it was a bit of a tight operation, but I managed it. Usually I do French seams, but they give a bit more bulk and it can be a fuss trimming the extra bulk where the seams join under the arms - so this time I thought I would have the fiddly bit over and done with at this stage to make life easier later on.
Inserting the sleeve always looks as though it will be daunting. The sleeve head seems pretty enormous compared to the armhole in which it is to be inserted. But it will work...
