Cutting Line

The very edge of the pattern piece, where the fabric is cut.  This outermost line is beyond the seamline (or sewing line) and the seam allowance.

The Skirt Front & Skirt Back are shown at the top with seam allowance added.

Below is a copy of the Skirt Back & Skirt Front with the Cutting Line & Sewing line highlighted; the green line indicates the Cutting Line and the pink dashed line indicates the Seam Line ( or Stitching Line / Sewing Line).

Note: The Seam Allowance is the portion between the Stitching Line and the Cutting Line.
