    The line I quoted is written:
    Alle Masse sind ohne Nahtzugabe (Nahtzugabe 0,75 cm je Seite dazugeben.)

    Thanks for your replies!!

    I think I am going to plan on adding the 1.5--I can always cut stuff down (on my mock-up one), but it'll be harder to add to it!
    I have not read thru all the posting, but the translation from FreeTranslations.com is:

    All measurements are without seam allowance (0.75 cm seam allowance on each side to give.)

    Sounds like the are without seam allowance. You need to add seam allowance.

    being from Italy and familiar with the metric system I would say you need to add 1.5 cm to the pattern before sewing it.

    Hi I just translated using Bing> Instructions translated as follows ----"All dimensions are without seam (seam add 0,75 cm on each side.)"
    This seems to be very clear! Good luck!
    Here in Aus. all magazines and most craft books are published in metric. Some have imperial measurements in brackets, others provide more gist for the grey matter to work upon. I find it amazing how I slipped very comfortably back to yards and inches even though I taught using the metric system all my 30 year career as an early educator. Seems our 'first language" is always with us!
