Suggested fabrics: Linen, tencel, crepe, rayon, cotton, ramie. Drape will affect the shape of your pants/jumpsuit, so consider how you would like the fabric to sit when selecting fabrics.
Fabric requirements: This pattern is designed to be hacked and adapted, so the amount of fabric you need will be determined by your style. Fabric widths vary a lot so as a guide, the general rule is to measure twice the pattern length to estimate fabric requirements. Wider fabrics require less fabric as you can top and tail the pieces, however if your fabric has a nap or directional print this is not possible and you need to place all pattern pieces in the same direction. In addition, if you are making a jumpsuit, you will need to add the length of the body pattern pieces.
Sizing: 6 – 20. Please check the size chart.
Notions: Thread; optional 4 cm (1 1/2″) wide elastic, depending on style.
PDF pattern includes: Instructions (including a link to an instructional video); print-at-home A4/US letter pattern; print-at-home eco A4/US letter pattern; A0 copy shop pattern. All patterns have layers, so you can print only the size(s) you need. It is recommended that you only print one size for the eco version to avoid confusion when tracing. There is also a handy envelope design to assist with storage and reference.
Note: The Phoebe Bib and Tucker or Phoebe Shirred can be added to the Phoebe Flares to make dungarees or a jumpsuit.
