So I posted this on the beginner forum but no one is responding, so maybe you guys can help (?)

So I got my first pattern yesterday and started today, I have cut out all my pattern pieces, fused the interfacings on to where it is supposed to go but now I'm confused.
The next instructions are
"Baste interfaced front yoke piece right sides together with skirt front and stich. Stich interfaced back yoke piece to skirt back in the smae manner." Which makes sense, but the picture doesn't make sense, and my fabric (which I'm pretty sure I cut correctly) doesn't match up.
If you can help me at all I would be soooo thankful!
So please try and help

This is where acurate marking would really help you. Make certain that you are matching notches as well as dots and triangles.

The widest part of the yoke piece should line up to the top (smaller) end of the skirt - it looked in the photo like you were trying to stitch the waistband yoke to the hem of the skirt.

Also, make sure you cut the correct waist yoke SIZE that would match your skirt. Many patterns are multisized and it is easy to cut on the incorrect lines.

Hope this helps. L.
