Bernadette from daisies and dresses shares a tutorial at The Sewing Rabbit showing how to add a layered sheer inset to a bodice. This is such a pretty detail! The lace layered over the bodice fabric gives the look of a sheer but retains all of the modesty of a solid fabric. She shows it for a little girl’s top, but this will work for adult bodices as well. Go to The Sewing Rabbit to find her tutorial.
