Pattern :

Seam allowances of 7 mm are included in the pattern. No need to add them.

With the sewing machine, take care of the tension of the stitches, and use a rather small length of stitches. Begin and finish all the seams with some backstitches.

By hand, use the backstitch: Make a stitch forward, on the lower part of fabric, then a small stitch backwards on the top, and so on.
