So, I’m somewhere between a novice and intermediate seamstress. I’ve worked with several sewing patterns before, and have never had any trouble piecing together the pieces. This is my first time using a Burda pattern (#7388), and I cannot for the life of me figure out how this sweetheart neckline bodice pieces together. The edges for the bodice center front and the center sides that are supposed to be seamed together aren’t even kind of the same shape.
I was able to get a somewhat working version of the bodice, but I was only able to do that by flipping the center side pieces upside down from how they were meant to be attached to the center front. But still, because of the differently shaped edges, there is a lot of fabric left over at the seam edge, so I know this can’t be right.
Can someone please help me figure out what I’m doing wrong or what I’m missing here? Thank you all so much in advance!!
