When working on multi-sized pattenrs, locate the cutting line for your size at the top and bottom of the pattern piece.
Each size has a different cutting line with different spacing on that line.
Once you recognize the line or dot markings for your size, it is easy to identify the same line throughout the pattern.
Don’t get confused by the size marked on the dots. These dots indicate seam placement for sewing and are alwyas 5/8 inch inside of the cutting line.
