Dear all,
I am trying to sew this pattern but I do not know how to proceed with the princess seams because the sides do have a start I have never seen. Instead of the usual union I have a sort of triangle and the under arm part does not get its usual look.
Can anybody help me? Thanks.

I have not used this pattern, but did find it in the review section, so maybe one of those PR members can help you.

Best wishes.

Bea Deguez - Princess seams are a little different than straight seams.

What I suggest doing is marking your stitching line (probably 5/8" from the edge) on both pieces of fabric (the center front and side front, most likely).

Then pin the pieces together AT THE STITCHING LINE. The edges of the fabric won't necessarily line up.

Hand baste. Yes, it's an extra step but it will save you heartache later on.

Now sew them together.

You will also find you might need to ease one seam into the toher. Some instructions suggest clipping the shorter seam ...But check that idea out further.
