- Your fabric needs to be at least 40% stretch to fit as designed.
- The stretch recovery is just as important as the stretch percentage. Good recovery will ensure your cardie maintains its fit and shape longer without becoming baggy.
- Both 4-way and 2-way stretch fabric will work well. A fabric with 4-way stretch will give more drape than a 2-way stretch. It will also swing and swish more along the 'waterfall' style front edge.
- Light to medium weight stretch fabrics such as jersey, silk satin with elastine, and silk jersey with elastine will give a lovely drape and swing.
- Warmer and heavier fabrics such as sweater knits, hacci knits, stretch wool, and interlock will give a snugger, cozy look with less drape.
- The other property to consider is how open the weave is. A tight weave such as jersey will give a more solid look than a more open weave such as a stretch wool or some sweater knits which can look more like a knitted garment.
- Thread to match
- Optional clear elastic (may be used to stabilize some fabrics, especially in the shoulder seams)
- Sewing machine
- Pins or clips
- Serger/Overlocker is optional but not required
