Once all your pieces are pinned, you may cut. (It is best not to throw around the fabric with the pinned pattern pieces on them, so they don't slide around, but if for some reason you cannot finish cutting all the pieces before you have to pack up, roll the fabric with the pieces still pinned and tuck away neatly until you are ready to cut.)
And now, familiarize yourself with this key, which comes with all our patterns. This will help you decipher the marks on patterns, along with next weeks How To, Reading Patterns!
