I purchased this pattern and am getting ready to do a muslin of this dress and coat and for the life of me I am confused about one part. In the instructions for the dress it states to cut out a 2 inch square to reinforce the inner corner of the bodice arm….putting it on the outside of the fabric. I have gone over these instructions for hours….reading them and looking at the pictures. Something is just not right. I always thought that when you reinforce a corner…you do it on the inside (wrong side) of the fabric. But when I look at the picture on the instructions (and using the Illustration shading key) it shows that they are tacking this 2 inch square on the outside (Right side) of the fabric. Now I’m thinking that this is going to show since it’s on the outside of the fabric, and I was always taught to do this on the inside of the fabric. This is the first time sewing a Vogue pattern (I knew there was a reason why I didn’t like buying them)….so….if anyone out there can take a look at the instructions of this pattern and maybe guide me….or show me where I am going wrong…it would be greatly appreciated.
