Piece together the rest of the bodice
For the sleeves I topstitched on 6 strips of ribbon
The pattern I used has an elastic casing at the waist but for this dress I shirred the back panel instead starting at the armhole line and working my way down. Need help shirring? See my tips here
To finish the dress I just continued with the rest of the pattern instructions. The only change I made was to add a layer of my purple sparkle tulle on top of the skirt before attaching it to the bodice.
