Recommended Fabric

This pattern will work equally well with jersey fabrics, sweater knits and stable knits. Your fabric should have between 10-20% stretch. Please note that if you use a fabric with more than 40% stretch the fit will be much looser. 

To test for stretch percentage, use the ruler on the back of the packaging, or measure a swatch width (normal width, a), then stretch it to its maximum and measure again (stretched width, b). Calculate: b divided by a minus 1. This is your stretch percentage. 

Materials Needed:

  • Fabric (stretchy)
  • Ribbing for neckline and sleeve cuffs (Version 2 & 4)
  • Leather, vinyl or contrast fabric for pocket and/or applique and/or elbow patches (optional)
  • Clear elastic, twill tape or stay tape for stabilizing the shoulder seams (optional)
  • twin needle for hemming (optional)
