Fabric- Your fabric needs to be a stretch/knit fabric with a slight 2-way stretch. Great examples are textured knit, double brushed poly, athletic knit, french terry, cotton lycra, and Liverpool.
It will need to have at least 20% stretch with good recovery to fit as it's designed. To check how much stretch your fabric has, take a piece of fabric, and pull along its stretch, if it allows you to stretch it at least 20% longer than its original length, then it has at least 20% stretch. I.e. A 2-inch piece of unstretched fabric should be able to be stretched to 2.4 inches.
* If you are using a narrower fabric, a directional print, or a fabric with nap you may need more.
You will also need:
- OPTIONAL Clear elastic with a minimum width of 1/4 inches. Approximately 1 yard will be sufficient for all sizes.
- Thread to match
- Sewing machine
- Pins or clips
- Cutting mat
- Tape measure
- Serger/overlocker optional but not required.
How do PDF/ digital patterns work? Simply download, print, and sew. You’ll need a free Adobe Acrobat reader program and any home printer (or a nearby copy shop for A0 printing). Once you’ve printed the pieces, tape or glue them together. You’ll find an easy-to-follow how-to guide inside the pattern instructions, plus support in our Facebook group.
The trim-free pattern comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes and includes full pattern pieces and a detailed tutorial to guide you every step of the way.
