Its basically a princesseam top with a band attached to it.
Just figure out where you want the band to sit .
Cut the pattern there.
Sew up top.

Band you should look at as two strips of fabric:
-fuse interfacing to them both.

Pin everything together : one band you pin good sides on the front , the other good side to wrong side of the inside top.
Your " top " will be sandwiched in the middle .
Sew together and you should have the perfect band.

I'd go for a old singer.
I have a singer 7102 and no complaints.

Wierd....
I think the picture is wrong in the way the fabric is folded
If the picture would be correct the grainlines would be drawn vertical.

What kind of serger do you have?
Tried another kind of thread?
Tried it on another kind of fabric?
No rolled hem button/ lever you might have pushed unknowingly?

I know you said you threaded it correctly, but did you threaded it in the correct order?
Sergers sometimes really can be a pain in the ****

Think thats because it's european....
And we are spoilt with a new issue every month that you can get everywhere.
If i walk into a bookshop there atleast 8 different sewing magazines i can buy each month.
And burda is a big one .

If i than read that you can sometimes get a burda in the states. With a couple off paterns and than you can download the rest....... I wouldnt think of burda either lol

Thanks a lot ladies.  I might do something using a combination of these links.  I will make the center like the fabric bud, and make fabric petals like the felt ones and layer it around the bud.  I'll see if this work out.  I wasn'r able to access the last link "lola".  I will try later.

Doesnt it open or something else?
I can just click and it shows te tute...
