Contact Simplicity support for assistance or purchase a duplicate of the pattern with the instructions.

Each pattern piece explains how many of each fabric piece is needed (ie, Cut 4, Cut 2, Cut 1) as well as whether it requires additional pieces to be cut from interfacing, etc. Generally, the arrows on the pattern pieces show how to line the pieces up on a piece of fabric. Grain line means the line is parallel to the fabric edge (not your cutting line, but selvedge--the actual manufactured edge of the fabric). Grain line is important for the drape of your garment. Cutting fabric on the bias (diagonal from the selvedge) will cause the fabric to stretch. The pattern will explains whether the edge of the pattern edge needs to be placed on the fabric fold.

I need instruction for simplicity pattern 7481

You can find this pattern on Amazon, right now, today, if you don't mind paying a fortune for it. ( over fifty bucks ! )

This site may be of some use.

There are many sewing or crafting forums where you might post a request for the primer of this pattern and if anyone has it, they may be willing to make a copy of it for you.

It's not difficult to make this one, it's really pretty simple, but if you're not confident you can figure it out on your own, you might try signing up for a sewing class. Any friends who sew well that might help ? A fabric store might have someone who could help, if you have no sewing friends who can assist.

Best of luck

Simplicity pattern 1291 view F. Instructions vague,ready to start sewing it together. Several pieces were cut on fold no indication if I keep them whole, my fleece does not march up with the size.

If the pattern instructs you to place the pattern on the fold, the folded fabric should be kept whole (do NOT cut the fold!).

You can probably contact Simplicity with your questions.

The instructions provided with the pattern are most likely the only instructions available. Perhaps you should take the pattern to a fabric store and ask some of the knowledgeable people there how to sew it together.
