Pattern Assembly:

 

Drape & Stitch patterns are TRIMLESS. Simply overlay the printed pattern pieces, aligning the pages at the circle guides.

TIP: Hole punch the circles on the TOP overlaying page, so you can easily see the underlying page.

It is recommended to lay the pages out in order of the page numbers that are displayed on the Page Reference key, left to right, top to bottom. Glue or tape pages together.

Trace your pattern pieces onto transfer paper to keep for future use (this is recommended if you have printed ALL size layers) or trim the outside of each paper pattern piece before laying on fabric.

A Pattern Assembly Guide specific to your pattern is included in your pattern tutorial.
