Hi All,

I hope there is someone out there who can help. I'm working on Simplicity pattern 2189 view C and I'm confused about the placket. The tissue pattern front has a center line and then two other lines that say "Fold Line for Interfacing". I can do the folding no problem, what I'm stuck on is the interfacing part. There is nothing that size or shape on the interfacing cutting diagram and in the instructions there is no mention of fusing interfacing to that area, even though later on it talks about fusing interfacing to the pocket, cuffs and collar pieces.

Is this something i should just know to do, or since it's not in the directions and not on the diagram do i just leave it out?

Thanks for any help you can offer! :)

Basically what you're doing is interfacing the part of the pattern that's the facing. So you only need to cut interfacing to match the facing part.

Most people just lay the pattern piece with the fold line on the edge of the interfacing with the facing part on the interfacing and cut two pieces. I prefer to trace off the facing to the fold line and cut the interfacing from that. That way I can shave off a little bit of the edge so the interfacing doesn't overflow the facing piece and mess up my ironing board cover.
