Suggested fabrics: You will need a fabric with 4-way stretch and at least 50% crosswise stretch. Keep in mind that your suit will be stretching both around your body and down it, so if your fabric doesn’t have 4-way stretch then it won’t fit correctly. If you are making this as a swimsuit, you will need swim lycra. If you are making this as a bodysuit, any knit will do as long as it meets the stretch requirements. You can use the same fabric for the outer fabric and lining or use separate lining fabric.
Fabric requirements: Sleeveless: 45″ wide fabric: 0.8 – 1.5 m (0.9 – 1.6 yd) / 54″ wide fabric: 0.7 – 1 m (0.8 – 1.1 yd) // With sleeves: 45″ wide fabric: 1.3 – 1.9 m (1.4 – 2.1 yd) / 54″ wide fabric: 0.9 – 1.9 m (1.0 – 2.1 yd) // Lining: 45″ wide fabric: 0.8 m (0.9 yd) / 54″ wide fabric: 0.7 m (0.8 yd).
Sizing: XS – 4X (approx. UK 6 – 24). Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.
Notions: 4 yd of 1/4″ wide elastic; stretch sewing machine needle; thread (polyester thread is good for sewing with knits because it has some give) // Optional: Two 3/4″ D-rings for an optional lace up front closure; soft foam cups (sizing up in foam cups is recommended for this suit); hand sewing needle (for sewing in cups).
PDF pattern includes: Instructions; US letter/A4 print-at-home pattern (24 pages); A0 copy shop pattern (1 sheet).
