My efforts toward the little black dress challenge are in full swing, and I'm super excited. I'm sort of stuck, though.

This is the first Burda pattern I've worked with, and I'm having trouble deciphering something. I laid out all my pattern pieces the same way as the miniature pattern layout. But if I'm interpreting the grain orientation on the pattern pieces correctly, they're all wrong. I know the first thought is that I just need to rotate the fabric 90 degrees, but there's no way that's what it wants me to do. The pieces wouldn't fit that way, and the fold would be in the wrong spot.

I've tried to go with logic, but I'm not even sure about that. I would think that for the bodice, you would want some stretch horizontally, right? It's stretch denim, so it does matter.

Please let me know if that was way too confusing.

You know what, never mind. The mini pattern layout just wasn't as "to-scale" as I was expecting. Problem solved!
