Question about Simplicity pattern 2448

I see that members have reviewed Simplicity pattern 2448 (tunic top) so I'm hoping someone can help me understand how to sew the band/band facing. I am doing View E and I'm very confused by step 8 where you attach the band to the garment. I do not understand the picture but in order for the dots and seams to line up, it appears you have to attach the back band opposite of how it seems it should go on. Do you match up the double notches on the back band piece and the garment? The curve of the back band would make you think it would go on in the opposite manner. If anyone out there has this pattern, please let me know if I am right.

One thing I do when I get confused is to loosely hand-baste the seam. That always lets me know if things are going together correctly, and if it's wrong, it's easy to try things another way.

Is this the part that's giving you trouble? (Posting this to see if others can help.):
Pin RIGHT side of band facing to WRONG side of garment, matching centers back, shoulder seams, small and large dots, clipping upper edge of garment to stay-stitching along curves. Stitch front and upper edges in 3/8 (1cm) seam, pivoting with needle in fabric at large dot. Trim seam and corners; clip curves.

You should do it how the instructions indicate. That is the facing...you will do right sides together a couple steps later.

Yes, that is the step that is confusing me. It basically requires that you sew a convex curve to a concave curve. I think I will baste it together very loosely as another member suggested. Thank you for your help!

Thank you! I think I will give that a try.
