Fourth time lucky!! I’ve made this pattern three times unsuccessfully, but finally decided NOT to line the diamond, back and front yolks as it’s a pain to perfect. I didn’t topstitch either (as suggested). The diamond was difficult to set it, but is worth the perserverence (re:unpicking) as it’s a great feature. Looks good with elastic in the hem for a bubble effect (mine came loose while out dancing!). So many possibilities with this pattern..
