Mama Cat bodice walk-through

by Dorie on December 9, 2012

It has been really fun to see Mama Cats out there in the wild. I’ve created a flickr group for my patterns and tutorials – if you’ve made something that fits, I’d love to see it there. I’ve also feel really appreciative of the feedback I’ve gotten on the Mama Cat pattern. Thank you! The little hints for improvement are really valuable to me. I’ve had a couple questions about the dress bodice come in, so I decided to walk through it in pictures here.

First, you start out with two of the pattern piece, which was cut on the fold. (The bodice is self-lined.)

Then you layer the two pieces on top of each other, right sides facing. Stitch around each armhole and stitch each end.

Turn right side out and press. Make pleats and press pleats out.

Sew shoulder seams

Add bias binding

Ta-da! Bodice.
