Gently open out the skirt piece. You will notice at the ends of the cut the fabric wants to hang in a ‘V’ shape. These mark the CENTRE FRONT and CENTRE BACK point for the skirt.
Align the CENTRE BACK and CENTRE FRONT points to allow you to find the side seam points. Mark with pins.
Take the bodice piece. Align the side seam points together to find the CENTRE FRONT and CENTRE BACK points. Mark with pins.
Place the bodice RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER with the skirt. Match up side seams and centre points. Pin together then ease the rest around.
Stitch in place with zig zag.
Finish the seam allowance with an overlocker or zig-zag stitch.
