Suggested fabrics: 2-way or 4-way medium weight knit fabric with at least 25% horizontal stretch. Lighter cotton Lycras, brushed poly, french terry, cotton interlock and thermal knits are all good choices. Heavier weight fabrics and those with higher spandex content will work but will give a tighter fit. Any knit that meets the stretch requirement will work, but may not give the same results.
Fabric requirements: 56″ (142 cm) wide knit fabric: Shorts, 1/4 – 2/3 yd (0.2 – 0.6 m) // Pants, 1/2 – 1 1/4 yd (0.5 – 1.2 m) // Ruffle(s), 1/4 – 1/3 yd (0.2 – 0.3 m).
Extra fabric may be required to match patterns or stripes or if you need additional length. You may need less fabric for smaller sizes using non-directional fabric.
Sizing: Newborn – 14 years. Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.
Notions: Thread to match; ball-point or stretch needles; 3/4″ (1.9 cm) wide knit or non-roll elastic for waist.
