– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?
Suggested fabrics: Light/medium weight stretch (knit) fabric with a minimum of 50% stretch (ideally the stretch should be 4-way, but 2-way is acceptable). Fabrics with good drape will work best for this pattern. Bamboo/rayon jersey is perfect. ITY knits and DBP (double brushed polyester) are also good choices. Cotton/Lycra jersey will work just fine, but heavier jersey will give a more rigid silhouette. If you do the regular neckband, you will also need cotton/Lycra ribbing.
Fabric requirements: 140 cm (55″) wide fabric: T-shirt, 30 – 110 cm (3/8 – 1 1/4 yd) // Tunic, 40 – 120 cm (3/8 – 1 3/8 yd) // Dress, 40 – 130 cm (3/8 – 1 3/8 yd).
Sizing: Preemie/small newborn – 12 years. Please check the size chart.
Notions: Hidden neckband: If your fabric is particularly light and stretchy, add a strip of lightweight stretch interfacing to the neckband strip.
PDF pattern includes: Instructions; A4/legal/letter print-at-home pattern (20 pages); A0 copy shop pattern (1 sheet); projector pattern. This pattern has layers so you can print just the sizes(s) you need.
