I’ve taken the plunge and have downloaded the drape neck top pattern 04/2012 #139. It’s for novices and easy to sew apparently. Unfortunately, I’m already in despair as I haven’t a clue what the pattern instructions mean nor even exactly what notions I need – do I need bias tap for the back neck or am I making a facing strip to do the job???
In particular I am clueless on the following;
Pin back shoulder edges to front shoulder edges, right sides facing. Lay self-facing of front on back and pin side facing ends to shoulder edges. Stitch shoulder seams. Turn facing to front. Do not press fold edge. Press shoulder seam allowances forward.
I am amazed that a pattern for novices gives no explanation of the terms and techniques and is so vague on what should be used. I can’t find answers on the website and am ready to give up before I’ve even started!!!
