The twist at the back looks challenging but it’s really easy to make! Use instructions, join our FB group, or contact us directly if you need help with this step.

Instructions for bodice preparations by Elle (thank you!):

Fold the seam allowance underneath and topstitch. Use stretch
seam(zigzag, coverstitch chainstitch etc).

Fold the fabric, matching the notches together with the right sides facing, and sew the inner edge (only to the notches). Do this for one side only.

Pull the other back piece through the hole between the notches.

Shape the fabric with your hands. Stitch the other raw edge (to the notches).

Place the back on the front bodice with right sides facing and stitch the sides.

Fold the front along the fold line to the outside and sew as shown on the left.

Cut the elastic to match the length of the back bodice band. You can also cut the corners to match the exact shape.

Sew all three layers together: front, back, and casing with elastic with right sides facing.
