I am cutting pieces and have gotten stuck on a step.  The pattern directions show the piece reversed on the cross fold and "butted" up to this is the same piece cut with the pattern piece right side up.  On the pattern piece it says Cut 1 on the fold (crossfold indicated on edge) wrong side up.  I am using McCalls pattern M9665.  Anyone have some feedback or ideas?  Thanks!  I have uploaded a picture of the pattern step under the name of "pattern panic" in Craftser's Photo Hosting since I could not add the picture to the post (due to my newbie status  Undecided )

For questions regarding specific patterns, I usually point people to Pattern Review. Here is the page of reviews for McCall's 9665. You must be a member to view reviews older than 6 months, but it's free, and I find it to be a very useful website!

If I understand your question:
You want to fold one edge of the fabric over--only as wide as the pattern piece--and put the "fold" edge of the pattern piece on the fold. 
Do not cut the fold, you want one piece of fabric with the fold in the middle. 

Is that what you needed to know?

OHO! Picture makes much sense! (thanks Jungrrl!)

Lay out pieces 6, 4 and 9 as shown but 6 will be cut twice edge to edge, LEAVING THE JOINING EDGE CONNECTED (if it's a true rectangle, you will end up with a rectangle that is twice as long as the pattern piece). Then fold over what you have left, and cut 10 and 11 on the fold, leaving the fold intact.
