For those tackling this Yohji piece here are some tips:
‘Back piece’ is the arms and back panel. The dart goes towards the neckline. Think of it like a shrug and sew the arms together.
The ‘front’ panel is like a collar that extends up and over. It is folded and attached.(the back is caught between the layers of the front.)
If you can visualize two tubes connected in a t-shape- one the arms and back, the other the front and collar.
Trace the pattern pieces from the A4 pdf and mock it up- this really helps.
