Layout as directed on pattern.
Make sure with silks or other similar fabrics to block it. I usually do this by snipping the very top edge only 1/2 inch (this is the edge they cut in the store – not the machine finished edge). Then tear it across. Now you have a strait edge. Use this to line it up on a fold. I like to pin the edges together and iron the center fold to make sure it doesnt shift.
The pin holes dont show on my fabric so I can use pins.
Vintage patterns are not printed on and do not include seam allowance on the pattern pieces, so you have to add your seam allowance when cutting.
