    I am working on a Geneva blouse. I love the pattern so far, but I’m a bit confused with the front packet. It is 1 1/4” wide, but the center front is marked 1/2” from front edge. The button guide also shows the buttons 1/2” from the edge. It seems like the CF and buttons should be centered on the placket at 5/8” from edge. My apologies if I am missing something obvious. Thank you for your help.

    Hi Paige. Because the front placket helps to form the collar it needs to be wide enough that there’s no chance it will roll out or fold on itself.
    It certainly works out very nicely if you sew it as instructed, so my suggestion is not to worry and let it happen. Enjoy the sewing
