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.
