I’m somewhat of a novice and am flustered by the brevity of instructions with this pattern. I’m ready to attach the yoke to the skirt. The zip runs through the yoke on this pattern. I don’t understand how to position the seam allowance for the yoke and for the skirt panels when I’m attaching the yoke. I hope that’s a clear question. This is what the pattern says:
“Fold the slit allowances of the center toward the right side of the skirt. Pin the front yokes onto the top edges of the inner skirt panels and of the hip yokes (seam 6); the princess seams meet the marked lines of the pocket. Stitch. Trim allowances and press inside the yokes.”
Later…“Fold the allowances along the slit edges inside. Position and pin the zipper under the slit in such a way that the little zipper teeth are covered. Stitch the zipper using the zipper foot (a).”
That’s so much ground to cover in a few sentences that I’m lost. Or scared. Or both. Help?
