Sew two rows of gathering stitches on the other long side and pull up to match the bottom edge of the bodice. Hand stitch the bodice to the skirt using a loose backstitch in the bodice color. I finish the hem by blanket stitching along the bottom, then crochet a decorative border into the blanket stitches. This is a nice way to showcase a lovely piece of fabric, and I find crochet bodices a LOT easier to make for a small doll than a sewn one. In fact, the fabric on the far left was a gift from Victoria, and made up into a lovely princess frock :-)
