I'm working with a pattern written in German. I've managed to translate the text, but am stumped on these acronyms appearing on the edge of some pattern pieces:
RVD/FL and MV-VM.

Hope someone can help!

Thanks, Martha Lyle

Hello Martha,

I should be able to help - at least a bit:

FL = Fadenlauf --> lengthwise grain line
VM = vordere Mitte --> center front

I have not come across yet RVD or MV: can you describe on which pattern pieces you found them? And which pattern company? I may be able to get a better idea or search their website.

RV is the abbreviation for Rei▀verschlu▀ --> zipper but I would have no idea yet what RVD stands for.

The abbreviations RVD and MV are Dutch. They stand for 'recht van draad' (straight of grain) and 'middenvoor' (centre front).
