Re: One Last Question about TV466

Do they fold under or over? I think I see how it's supposed to go. Will a lot of the facing be visible? That might be what's stumping me.

One Last Question about TV466

I'm so close to being done TV466 and I'm having a bit of a crisis. I don't understand how the pleats are supposed to go. I've tried folding them like the pattern says but it just seems to bunch up and not look pretty. The diagram in the instructions isn't helping me either. I can't wrap my head arou...

Re: TV263 Question

So it'll automatically fold up and look pretty? Is this something I need to see to understand? Haha. I'm so confused. But I'll finish off the waistband and put the hook and eyes in to see. Thank you so much!

TV263 Question

It's me again! I've started on the dress but I'm confused as to how it closes in the back. I see on my dress form how it hangs and it looks good but how do you secure the burnoose pleat in the back? Is it done with the hook and eyes? Or is it another way that I'm just not seeing? I'm at the step whe...

What's the difference between the vest/collar and regular fabric. As well as what is the shawl/ cuff? I feel silly not knowing these but even after looking at the p...
