The pattern doesn't include seam allowances but they state to draft two pieces in my own, just rects. Do these need seam allowances added to them as well? They give measurements but don't say if its including seams.

It wouldn't be including seam allowances - add whatever seam allowance you like to work with.

Actually I don't agree. Sometimes the self-drafted pieces are the size you cut, the seam allowances are included. You have to read it carefully. The clue is usually in a phrase such as "finished width" followed by a measurement. You can usually tell from the finished width if the measurements they have given included seam allowances or not.

Exactly. If the finished measurement is just double then you know that it doesn't have seam allowances.

Vireya and Nancy K,
Thanks for that explanation!!! I don't want to admit how many years that question has stumped me when working with Burda's!!!
