I did something terrible Cry
I was making my first dress and I was sewing the two pieces together and when I was done I had done this:

There isnt an waistband, and the only way of starting over is cutting them up, and \I dont have enough fabric anymore Cry
Does anyone know how to sew them so they are both good? I would really appreciate your help!

If you go out and buy something called a seam ripper, you can tear out even the tiniest stitches! Just be careful not to punture your fabric. Good luck!

Cut out the fabric that is sewed together and resew it. If it will make the dress too short, add in a waistband.

seam rippers work wonders. They can get in tight places because of their shape.

I have two seam rippers, one has a built in light .. just for times like this when I need to see tiny stitches. I bought mine at Joann Fabrics. Hope this helps some.

More often that not you always sew with the pretty and good sides facing towards each other.  That way the seem in on the inside and the pretty sides have a nice neat line.

Right sides out? Don't you mean right sides together? Don't want poster to get confused. You pin them right sides together. So make sure the bodice is with the right side out and the skirt is inside out. Then put the bodice (top part) inside of the skirt part and match your notches if you made any. Pin the bottom of the bodice part to the top of the skirt part and sew. Just like you had it but flip the bodice right side out. Can't wait to see it!

Can make dresses for your princess!
