we start by serging the main dress hem




Now fold 1/2" from edge towards the wrong side then stitch from inner folded edge of hem "NOTE :you may also use a narrow hem foot or create a rolled hem using your serger



Cutting armhole


I did use french curve to cut the armhole , it's almost 3" by 6"


first we fold the main dress


cut both armhole in one step


Folding the dress





draw the armhole







Bias Tape


Use the 2" Piece we cut before to make the bias tape

I did use the bias tape maker, it's make it easier to press


just start to press while you passing the fabric through the bias maker





pressing











With right side of the bias tape and the wrong side of the dress start to stitch along the armhole






stitching the bias tape to the armhole











Before folding the bias tape to the other side , make small cuts along the armhole





fold the bias tape to the other side of the dress right side

Making the bow





We did cut before 2 pieces with size 5" by 45" ,put right side togather and start to stitch from one side only ,,,to make long piece ,,we can later trim it to have the

lenght you prefer for the bow





stitch right side togather





fold bow piece in half lengthwise ,right sides together and press. Using 1/2" seam allowance ,stitch the long side













Using the loop turner , turn your bow inside out then press






press






serge the dress top make small triangle and stitch
