FOLD (– – – –) means: Cut on the fold, the fold being the center of the pattern piece, but never a cut edge or 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 diagrams are to be placed face down on the fabric. The cutting diagrams on the pattern sheet show how the pattern pieces
should be placed on the fabric.
The cutting diagrams show the placement of the pattern on the fabric.
For 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 extending over the fold of the fabric in the cutting
diagram should be cut last from a single layer of fabric.
SEAM AND HEMLINE ALLOWANCES are included on an average:
1” (3 cm) hemline, 5/8” (1.5 cm) for all edges and stitches. Using BURDA copying paper, transfer the lines and symbols of the pattern onto the wrong side of the fabric. Instructions can be found in the packaging.
Press the interfacing pieces (indicated in the first step) onto the wrong side of the fabric.
While sewing, the right sides of the fabric are facing.
Transfer all lines of the pattern onto the right side of the fabric using basting stitches.
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
