You'll have to really study the pattern pieces closely, because you'll be confronted with pattern markings that look like this: A lot of dots, some small triangles, some squares, and notches. What does it all mean? Well, we know what notches are for -- they are a guide for joining one piece to another. The small dots indicate things like stitching lines, gathers, darts, and grainlines. The triangles indicate the fold line for my front facing. The squares show button and buttonhole placement. There's no guide or key for these markings on the pattern sheet, however. I only figured these marks out by reading, and re-reading, the pattern instructions. One big advantage to these punctures in the pattern tissue (as opposed to printed markings)? It's really easy to transfer them to another piece of paper. Your pencil lead just fits into them.
