Starting the Whitney…

I am (finally!) starting the Whitney and had a quick question on the pattern cut-outs.

Do the Pocket pieces start out the same size as the Front panels, and then get trimmed down to their final size, in the next step where you fold the pattern? (Trim Top Edge of Pocket Inserts)

In other words, do you basically first just cut eight Fronts and then trim the top half of four of them down to Pockets?

The reason I ask is because the picture on Page 5 (Stack cutting) shows the pockets stacked on top of the Fronts already trimmed, but I wasn’t sure where/when they got that size… If that’s showing what the final result is supposed to look like, then that makes sense.

That’s a lot of potentially wasted fabric and I don’t want to run out later!
