I am attempting the vintage dress with the cowl back in Burda 5/2012. I am stuck at a point where the pattern description says:
Stitch front lining to front self facing, right sides together.and stitch back lining to self facing of back. Turn lining piece up and stitch to seam allowances, close to seam.
What does this mean? I am completely puzzled.
I have a front dress piece and a back dress piece in the outside fabric and a front and back in lining fabric. What is the self facing and where does it need to be attached?
If anyone could explain this I would be very grateful. I tried to search everywhere but I cannot find anything that explains…. please help.
