SEAM AND HEMLINE ALLOWANCES are included on an average:
5/8” (1.5 cm) for all edges and seams. Use BURDA carbon paper to transfer all pattern lines and markings to
the left side of the fabric pieces. You will find instructions in the packet.

INTERFACING
Cut interfacing according to the drawing and press onto the left fabric side

SEWING
When sewing the right fabric sides are facing.
Transfer all lines on the pattern using a basting stitch to the right fabric side.

Tips for working with stretchable fabrics
The optimal result from working with stretchy fabrics will be achieved by using an overlock-machine. Seams will become very elastic and more durable, and will not break when wearing the finished clothes. If you are not going to use an over-lock machine, stitch the seams using an elastic special stitch or a narrowly adjusted zigzag stitch. Please take care that the thread tension is not set too high. For delicate mesh fabrics it is necessary to use a Jersey needle for stitching with your sewing machine.
