    Unfortunetly – I am more of a visual person and I am just not understanding how to make the placket for the buttons. Is there anyplace I can go to see what all the folding looks like?

    Ok, this shows the difference between right side and wrong side:

    1

    According to your markings from the pattern, you will place your interfacing strip 1/2 inch from the edge of the placket like this:

    2

    Then you fold that 1/2 inch overhang towards the WRONG side of the fabric:

    3

    Then fold 1 and 1/4 inch towards the RIGHT side of the fabric: It should line up with the edge of your interfacing:

    Then you will stitch the bottom edge and trim per directions, Then turn it so that the interfacing is on the inside, and the RIGHT sides are facing OUT and you move on to step 3 of the directions.

    Does this help any?
