Pattern puzzlement... any ideas?

Hi everyone

Thought I would try to be really clever and "whip up" (ha!) a top (getting really adventurous with the sewing now!!!).

And I am completely STUCK on one stage! Driving me bonkers! Do any of you have any ideas????

I have posted pics of the pattern pieces and the instructions here should you be feeling generous with your advice...


Oh! and we do have a winner for pay it forward... just have to take the photos! (stay tuned...)

Hmmm, very confusing instructions. Which particular pattern is it? Maybe you can show a photo of the actual top on the pattern packet.

I don't know how anyone could figure that out...not me anyway!Looks like it's going to be lovely.The fabric is beautiful.

i left some comments on the flickr photo, based on my own sewing knowledge, NOT they written instructions. Hope they help. I also assumed the top had sleeves of some description!

Thanks again lovely crafters!

Did this eventually make sense? When I read sewing patterns this is where it begins & ends..utter confusion.
Good luck!


to my other half who puts up with the mess, makes me happy and keeps me sane.
to my beautiful boys who give me so much i want to remember and make the everyday something to treasure.
to my mum who alway let me play with fabric and the good scissors, and who knows a lot of songs.
to my dad who was always happy for us to make a mess and who laughs at us when we deserve it.
to both parents for making sure i still got the work done.
to my dear friends for listening and for sharing the laughs.
and, to you for visiting!
