I really need some help, I’m a beginner sewer, almost finished my second pair of shorts using this pattern: http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/122011-leather-shorts
Reaching step 7, facings, I do not understand the language or what it is asking me to do. Can someone please explain what I’m supposed to do, in really simple terms :)
I’ve got the back facing piece and front facing piece cut out with interfacing sewn on, with seam allowance of 1.5cm on each edge. Please help :)
Step 7, Facings:
Stitch right side seam of facing, as mirror image of seam on shorts. On narrow edges of facing, turn
allowances to inside, 7 mm (1/4 in) wider than marked, and glue down (glue stick). Lay facing under upper
edge of shorts, wrong sides facing, matching seams. Seam allowance of facing extends past upper edge of
shorts. Stitch ends of facing to zip tapes and to allowances of opening edges, not catching shorts pieces. Glue
facing to upper edge of shorts (glue stick). Topstitch close to upper edge of shorts. Trim away extending
allowance on upper edge of shorts. Sew inside edge of facing to seams and darts.
Thank you, that is good advise.
