    Hi, I’m confused on where to draw the line for the placket. On pg 46 it says to use the center-back fold line and illustration looks like it’s from the center of the skirt using the fold line as a guide. Then what is the center fold line on the pattern that runs the length of the skirt for? It’s the line about a half inch away from the fold line that has the placket dot on it.

    I notice you asked in the Facebook group too and I answered in a little more detail there.
    In short, it depends entirely on whether the dress you’ve designed requires any opening in the centre back skirt.
    If an opening, like a zipper, or button placket extends into the skirt panel then you need that extra seam allowance.
    If not, use the inner line (centre back) and cut your skirt on the fold.
