FOLD (– – – – – –) means: Here is the center of a pattern piece, but in no case a cut edge or a seam. The piece should be cut double, with the fold line forming the center line. Pattern pieces that are outlined with a broken line in the cutting layout are to be placed face down on the fabric.
The cutting layouts on the pattern sheet show how the pattern pieces should be placed on the fabric.
When cutting from a single layer of fabric, the pattern pieces are pinned to the right side. For double layers of fabric, the right sides are facing and the pattern pieces are pinned to the wrong side. The pattern pieces that are shown in the cutting layout extending over the fold of the fabric should be cut last from a single layer of fabric.
Please note: In all cases, cut piece 1 from a single layer of fabric. Pin the pattern piece, printed side up, to the right side of the fabric.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
