I am currently working on a sailor suit (Simplicity 4711) for my soon-to-be-born son, and it calls for a continuous lap. I have never done one before, and I am getting so frustrated with it. I cut everything precisely, and I think I followed the instructions correctly but obviously I did something wrong because the lap is sticking out instead of meeting up nicely and "tucking" inside under where the buttonholes go.

I tried to find videos online that show how to do this, but I am not having any luck. I also looked at reviews for the pattern and no one else seems to have this problem.

Here is a link to pictures of the problem and of the instructions I followed:

THANKS! :)

I can see the problem, the piece that is showing should be folded under, in the seam, and then, the flap where the button holes go is sticking out to go over where the buttons go, and the continuous lap will be invisible.
Hope this is clear. good luck.
