I'm a relative newbie when it comes to sewing but I thought I could make this romper for my daughter. I thought I was doing alright until I started the bottom part of the romper. the first step is: "reinforce inner corner of SHORTS FRONT (10), pivoting at the small circle. Clip to small circle."

WHAT?!?!?!? The pattern picture doesn't help me at all and this is one thing I can't find on Youtube. Can someone help me, please? thank you so much in advance for your time and help.

Check your pattern piece for the shorts front. There should be a small circle on it....just the distance of the seam allowance from the edge at the corner they are referring to.

You are going to reinforce it by sewing a short seam 5/8 of an inch from the edge of the fabric, and then "clip to the small circle" by cutting the seam allowance perpendicular to the seam you have just made....snipping almost up to the edge of the stitching.

Now you are ready to sew your pieces together.

Yes, the "L" you see is your line of stitching, and the "small circle" is the corner of the L.

What pattern and what are the instructions for the step you are trying to complete?

All those dots and triangles are there to guide you and the instructions should show how to use them.

Reinforcing is essentially the same as stay stitching. You run a series of stitches to support the fabric. In the case of a reinforce stitch line prior to clipping it's there to support the garment piece when you clip the seam allowance so the fabric doesn't tear/rip/fray beyond the seam line. When you clip the seam allowance after the reinforced stitches are sewn you clip to the reinforcement stitches but not through them.
