Sewing Lessons

Yesterday evening I held another private sewing lesson. Client was using a New Look Pattern. Dispite being a very experienced dressmaker, even I found the order of instructions out of sinc! If I had to read it several times to make sense of it, how is a novice supposed too?? 
On the plus side I was able to work it out and give advice and demonstrations as needed. 
I would suggest always reading a pattern through before commencing work, always transfer all pattern markings, and if necessary, make notes as to the order of work if you think it would be easier to shuffle some stages about!
