    When attaching the lining to the dress should the seam allowance be pressed towards the bodice or skirt (step 7 under Attaching the Lining)? It naturally wants to go towards the bodice but there is a reference earlier on about it going towards the skirt. Thanks, Laura x

    Press it towards the bodice, this way the seams are tucked in nicely. : )

    Thanks, Mama_Knowles. That’s what I ended up doing but I had to hand-stitch it because I somehow got the whole dress so twisted inside and out that it’s the only way I could make it work. I’m happy with it now though. WIll post pics in the flickr pool soon!

    thanks again, Laura x

    I can’t wait to see! It’s a favorite pattern of my daughter and me.

    Mama_Knowles – this is my second version. You can see the first one here (probably my most favourite thing I’ve ever sewn!). http://behind-the-hedgerow.com/2013/04/26/oliver-s-fairy-tale-dress-kcw-spring-2013/
