I am trying to make Burda pattern 7543 – handbag F.

Given that I am a complete novice, I am stuck when I have reached the instructions;

Sew seams at both sides (right side facing) – done
Turn inside out so right sides are now facing outwards – done
Trim seam allowance on top and bottom to 0.5cm – done

Does anyone know what it means by finish seams together? Does this mean sew together? Because I’d have thought they would have just written sew….

It doesn’t make any sense to sew these parts at this point, because they are still not attached to the body of the bag yet.

I hope this question makes sense and I hope someone can help!!!
