Pattern errata:

This is a beginner pattern not an intermediate as stated on the printed pattern.

On the old, printed pattern the pocket linings A and B were incorrectly numbered. Piece 5 should be called Piece 6. The larger of the pocket bag pieces is referred to as piece 5 in the instructions.

When constructing the pockets; piece 7 (the pocket facing) is attached to piece 6 (the smaller of the two pocket bags). These are then sewn to piece 5.
