This is my manufacture plan for my college fashion show.
1. Creating the bodice - Sew the darts in the back bodice and attach all 3 sections of the front together using 1.5cm seam allowance and over lock.
2. Reduce bulk at the bust point and press open.
3. Sew the shoulder and side seams together using 1.5cm seam allowance and over lock still leaving the other side free for the zip to be inserted.
4. Create the facing by sewing all the front sections together using 1.5cm seam allowance and attaching at the shoulder and side seams of the back facing piece and over lock.
5. Right sides together and pin at the shoulder seam and continue to distribute ready to sew 1.5cm seam allowance.
6. Press over to the opposing side to then be attached in the retaining row of 0.5cm.
8. Creating the skirt - Sew the 1st panels first placing both fabric pieces on top of the Wadding and sew 1.5cm seam allowance from the first notch curving it neatly to then carry on straight leaving the raw edge ready to sew to the next panel and over lock.
9.Repeat this process for all the panels -2,3,4 but then leave both raw edges for panel 5 making it easier to attach to the other panel 5 on the front or back and over lock edges.
10. Turn the right way round and match notches together and sew a 1 cm seam allowance up to the top of the panel.
11. Sew the panels together matching the 1cm right sides and sewing a 1.5cm seam allowance and over lock edge.
12. Make sure it fits the mannequin at the side seams and sew onto the opposing panel 5 on the other side and leave the other zip free for the zip to be inserted.
13. Due to the caution that the bodice might not fit the model I will have to hand tack the circles up to above the bust point and attach the facing and the rest of the circles after it has been fitted.
14.Attach the bodice and skirt together by placing right sides together and sewing a 1.5cm seam allowance matching them at the side seams from the zip on the front to the zip on the back then over lock and turn the right way up.
15. Insert the zip.
16. Press any creases out and remove all threads ready for the catwalk.
