Hi,
I want to make this easy sounding top, but I'm puzzled by the following instruction:
"The pleats arrows on piece 21 are marked for size 36. For the other sizes remark the pleat arrows, according to the seam lines "

How do I know where to remark the pleat arrows?

Thanks

Michele

Those directions always throw me too!

Measure how far the pleat lines are from the 36 seam line. Then, on your traced pattern, mark them that same distance from whatever seam line you're using.

Or...

Once you've traced your pattern, you can just slide it so your seam line is on top of the 36 and then mark.

At least that's how I do it!

Thank you so much. My brain was just far too tired to figure that out. It makes sense now.
