- PDF with detailed instructions. The instructions include cutting layouts, sewing tips, short and sweet versions of instructions, detailed photo assembly instructions, a detailed pattern measurement breakdown and metric conversions.
This pattern is designed for use with moderate stretch knits only, such as Jersey or ITY. The fabric should stretch 25-35 percent cross grain, meaning that 4 inches of material should stretch to 5 or 5.25 inches, at least. Really, you can get away with using knits that have 20% stretch. The samples are made using two jersey knits of different weights and a pique knit (the dress). The pique knit provides an example of how the garment will look with a much stiffer knit. A stiffer knit is really ideal for achieving a split cowl that stands up.
This version of the pattern comes with sizes XXS-L ONLY . Sizes XL-5X coming soon.
