Additional Notes

This PDF sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

Hoping my next effort at a Gable turns out a touch better, but the shape and ease of assembly are just spot on.

I was originally intimidated by the neckline, but it was so easy and turned out very well! I recommend basting the neckline in place before top stitching. I used a double needle to top stitch with stretch thread in the bobbin, which worked out very well. The fit is perfect.

The instructions were clear and easy to follow
