The directions for putting the yoke and bodice together for a novice are not good. This is a costume. “With RIGHT sides together, pin yoke to bodice, matching centers, placing small dots at shoulder seams and spreading inner corners of bodice to fit yoke. (Bodice back extends 5/8” beyond finished edges of yoke.) Stitch, stitching along stitching lines at corners. Press seams toward bodice."
So, am I supposed to just stitch along the stitching line markings or all of it? Then, it looks like the wrong side will face out. Unless, I am supposed to stitch the bottom of the yoke and flip it up and pin RIGHT sides together, but then it seems I should have pressed the fabric to be able to pin RIGHT sides together. I have called Simplicity and missed their return call and still waiting after two hours. May just need to go to the fabric store and plead for help.
