They say
THE SEWING INSTRUCTIONS ARE AS THEY APPEARED ON THE PATTERN AND IS WHAT THE CUSTOMER GOT BACK THEN. Sometimes the patterns have more description and are short on sewing instructions. I have done my best to include all pattern pieces. Please read all instructions on the pattern before purchasing fabric and cutting of the pattern. All patterns are sewable, just use your head, a little common sense and patience and your garment will turn out just fine. Instructions for basic sizing up or down are also included with the pattern.
