I'm working on a La Mia Boutique pattern for the 1st time (June 2011, top 617) and I don't know any Italian :)
Can I have some help translating a couple of the terms on the pattern peices:
arricciare (on a dashed line parrallel to a curved seam line on peice 3)
* google suggests curl, pucker or crinkle. In context it could be either stretch or gather, but I need to know which. It doesn't look gathered on the illustration.
Molleggiare leggermente(on a dashed line parrallel to the seam line on all the ruffle peices)
* google suggests "slightly springy", from the illustration I think they mean gather slightly.
Thanks for any clarrification you can provide.

I went to the online tranlator .
arricciare= to curl
Molleggiare leggermente=To soften slightly
I use this online translator it is easy to download and its free.
hope this helps. are you working with a knit?
To me it sounds like there's suppose to be a little ruffle that is soft.

A quick and dirty search (arricciare sewing) reveals this blog post:

arricciare means to gather
molleggiare leggermente means to loosen slightly could mean to gather but just very little
Hope this helps.

from the shape of the pattern I'd bet it means to ease, and since easing is to lightly gather it seems to fit.
