I love the yoke contrast. Makes it very girly. Looks great!

Hi KariLouMc, I did the layout with wrong sides together- I chose that way so I could see the right side of the fabric and make sure that there weren't any imperfections on it. She doesn't explicitly state to cut it out this way, but that's how she does it in the video and that's how I prefer to do it too! Hope that helps!

Hi, I bought the pattern but my instructions are not clear about whether the fabric layout should be right sides together, and in the video Janet cuts pieces with WRONG sides together. The booklet gives color-coded instructions on right/wrong side, everywhere but layout, which is in grayscale. Did you layout with right sides together? Thank you!
