So let's just finish up the Lingerie Sew-Along, shall we?
When last we left off, we finished the side seams, the bodice facing, and we bound the top edges.
As far as the bodice facing edges on the inside are concerned, they can either be serged together with the bodice seam allowance, bound, or just basted together. The point is just to keep the inside facing from bunching up inside your bodice and creating unsightly lumps.

I start by pinking the edges of the hem if necessary. I'm using charmeuse and it frays a bit so pinking will help keep that under control.

So how did it go for you? Did you hit any snags? I did, I got it all done perfectly, went to iron my hem, and managed to accidentally burn a tiny spot on my hem. Yeah, lame.
Any questions/ comments?
