Suggested fabrics: This pattern is designed for swimsuit knits with a high amount of stretch (50-60%). Fabric with lycra or spandex will hold up the best. If you’re using the suit for swimming, you’ll want to avoid fibres that hold a lot of water (cotton). You can line your bottoms with swimsuit lining or the same fabric you are using for the rest of your suit. If you are not using swimsuit lining, add the lining requirement to the main fabric requirement.
