Supplies and Fabric

Fabric: The pattern is designed for and tested in light to medium weight knit fabrics, such as jersey and college/french terry, with at least 40% stretch. Use the stretch guide in the pattern to evaluate your fabric.

The fabric requirement below is an estimation for 160 cm (63”) wide fabrics, not preshrunk. We recommend you to add 20 cm (8”) extra if you’re purchasing new fabric for this project.

Optional: to stabilise the shoulder seams, 6-10 mm wide clear elastic, or other firm elastic. Alternatively you can use a strip of light weight woven fabric, cut on the bias.

Sewing machine needle: Don’t forget to use the right needle for your fabric, for knit fabrics a stretch needle is usually recommended.

Other useful materials: Coordinating thread, fabric scissors, needles/clips, tape measure.
