This pattern contains women's sizes 0-20
Stretch fabrics with at least 40% stretch, preferably containing spandex or lycra.
Please note that this pattern has negative ease, and as such it is very important to choose fabrics with the appropriate amount of stretch in order to get the right fit.
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.
- Fabric with at least 40% stretch
- 1" (2.5cm) wide elastic
