Print the sweetheart bodice from the Augusta pattern, elastic back (or your preferred back, it doesn’t matter which style back you choose!), the Capri bodice and the bodice knot, in the size being sewn.

Place the Capri Bodice over the Augusta bodice. Align the center seam. Align the top of the Capri Bodice to the top of the Augusta bodice. Trace the cut out onto the Augusta pattern. (Please note, the color of the Capri bodice was changed in this picture so the two different bodices could be more easily identified from each other.)

Cut four Capri bodice knot pieces and sew them together as instructed to create two finished knot pieces. Place the knots onto the Augusta bodice as instructed in the Capri Pattern. Complete the bodice according to the Capri instructions, taking into account the new curved shape of the Augusta bodice.
