All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 30.
Begin by attach the side bodice pieces to each of the front bodices, matching up any notches. I recommend a French seam here since the dress is unlined. Press the seam and avoid puckering the fabric.
Next, add the side bodice to either side of your back bodice before sewing the shoulders together with French seams
Using a regular seam, attach the front neckline facing to the back facing at the shoulder. Press the seams open and finish the outer edge with a rolled hem.
Fabric faces together, attach the facing along the neckline of your bodice. Clip the seam allowance around the curve, turn your facing toward the inside of your dress and press.
Overlap your front bodice panels and pin them together, like below.
This pattern is loose and comfy, but if you’d like the top bodice portion to fit a tad more snug, you can add 1″ pleats where the back bodice meets the side. Since the skirt tiers just gather into the bodice, it just means there’ll be a bit more gathered into the back if you add the pleats.
Create each of your skirt tiers, attaching the front and backs at the side seams using French seams. Gather the upper tier into the bodice and attach with a regular seam. Repeat with the lower tier, gathering it into the upper. I recommend binding the seams to keep them neat.
Create each of your sleeves, sewing up the inseam with a French seam. Press the seam flat.
Set each of your sleeves into their respective armscyes and hem the lower edges with a 1/4″ rolled hem. Do the same with the hem of your skirt to finish the dress.
