I am making Burda 7513. There are views A & B. I am making B. B instructions start at page 3 step 15. They do not say “make steps _ to _ same as A” or anything. I am not sure what to do. I have been picking this project up and puting it down for days as I hate to do something I can’t undo. I am working with a knit and I find that it is harder to take stitches out of a knit, more than a woven. I love the way this dress looks and I am very frustrated. I really want to make it!
I noticed this with Burda before – lack of instructions in favor of pictures – but I am not a visual learner. Sewing helps develop my visual skills but it is still not my strong suit. Both my parents had great visual skills but not me.
So, anyone experienced with this pattern, please feel free to contact me. I would really appreciate knowing where to start with view B.
