    Thank you! I came to this direction in the pattern and had no idea what the term meant (this is the first dress I have ever attempted), but I felt sure I would find the answer here–and so I did!

    I am unable to really pay attention to this clip because your machine is horribly loud!! Is it just this video or is it truly this loud? Sounds like an overhead train passing. Ouch!!

      Lillian, that’s my old Pfaff, and, yes, it really was that loud! I now have a quieter BabyLock, and my son is going to be reshooting these older videos so we have better sound and visual quality. Hope to post those this summer! Warmly, Jennie

    I totally thought understitching was something else completely. lol Thank you so much for clarifying!

    Thank you so much. I had no idea what was meant by understitching. I’m having fun creating this dress.

    Thank you! I was ready to toss out my dress until I read this.

    That is so simple when you see it but so frustrating when you don’t know how. What a genius. Thanks so much.

      You are so right, Margaret! This was one area I had to see done when I was learning to sew — it made no sense as a one-liner instruction in a pattern!

    Thank you! I read that on the directions for the lining and didn’t understand what it meant. I stitched the lining to the bodice 1/4″ around the top because I though that would do – this way is SO much better because you don’t see the stitching on the right side.

      So glad that was helpful, Rachael! Happy sewing! 🙂
