Looks pretty easy, sew the inside leg seam of each trouser leg together,
then sew the ****** seam and do the waistband.

Help with Simplicity pattern 3894 Top C 2.With RIGHT sides together. 3.With RIGHT sides together. It is not clear on how to put RIGHT sides together on 2. and 3.

Just guessing here. Put the front & back pieces together with the rights sides facing each other. Stitch the shoulder seams, then stitch the side seams.

What Does Right Side Wrong Side Mean

Right Sides Together

Simplicity Pattern 4597-apron A has missing or vague instructions to make pleats & sew pocket to front of bib apron. Can anyone explain how to make the pleats and secure to the bib apron front.

Search the internet for "pleat" instruction:

Once the pleats are formed on the one piece, the two pieces are stitched together with a regular seam (as though there were no pleats in the second piece).

Have a simplicity pattern for a cape. Has 2 pieces, from and back. How do I shorten the cape to get front and back to be the same length?

This is a bit complicate. the reason the pattern pieces are different in length is because the front is usually longer because on a woman, there is the bust area to consider. This make the front longer to accommodate that extra fullness.
If you do not have a bust area then why not just use two back patterns? Hope this helps.

I lost my instructions for pattern 5527 (diaper bag). Can you help?

You could contact Simplicity and see if they can help.

or find a free diaper bag pattern on line and use as a guide.

bags arent too difficilt, usually need to interface well, attach pockets, straps, then sew lining to top edge wrong side to wrong side, leaving a bit of the lining or side seam open so you can get inside to attach lining seam allowances to bag seam allowances to hold together.

I need help with burda 7187

Usually with a wrap dress, you join front triangular pieces to bodice back at shoulders and side seams (often leaving a slit open in one side seam to pull the tie through). Then stay stitch neck and front edges to prevent stretching. Then neaten neck edges turn and stitch, or attach a facing. Probably if this pattern has a facing then you may need to attach skirt to waist and also attach the tie ends to the front edge before facing is attached. So when you turn facing to inside you will have the tie end in position at the point of the bodice/skirt seam on both sides of the dress.
