Has anyone used this pattern? I am trying to do dress C from this pattern and am a bit confused by the pattern/cutting layout. It shows that I need to cut 1 of piece 9 and the selvage is at the top. Then I need to cut 2 of piece 10 on the fold with the fabric folded at the bottom. My confusion is that the letters Sel. are on the right hand side of the picture. How can that be if the selvages are on the top and bottom for the placement of these 2 pieces, how can you have selvage of the right? Can someone please help me?

Another example of poor illustrations and directions by the big 4! The "sel" to the right is meant to indicate that it is folded up so you can cut piece 10 on the fold. See how it's written level with where the folded up selvedge is?

Edited to add - you'll only have 1 piece 10, not 2. As it's cut on the fold, it will be 1 full bodice front, not 2 half fronts.

Thank you so much for clarifying! I truly am a beginner and really thought I could just follow along and do this. Each time I get it out, I get scared and put it away. I finally decided I needed to get brave and give it a whirl.

I am so glad I found this site! Thanks again!
