Primary fabric Light to medium light-weight knit fabric with 60% to 100% two-way or four-way stretch is ideal. Jersey, interlock and French terry are great choices. If you use fabric with less stretch, you may choose a larger size. Conversely, if you use fabric with more stretch, you may choose a smaller size. The same fabric is used to line the top front. However, if your knit fabric is on the heavier side, you may choose to line the top front with a lighter-weight knit fabric. Jersey and tricot are great choices.
Facing Fabric A front neckline facing is used to support the pleats. This facing uses a stable woven fabric. Quilting cotton, light-weight twill, muslin and light-weight broad cloth are great choices. Do not use a loose weave woven or a fabric that tends to expand such as linen. Do not use knit fabric.
Interfacing Use light-weight woven or weft insertion fusible interfacing.
- 7” (18 cm) piece of woven single fold bias tape
- 7” (18 cm) of bias fusible tape or bi-stretch interfacing
- Ball-point or stretch machine needles
- Walking foot for your sewing machine (optional)
- Serger machine (optional)
- Cover stitch machine to finish your hems (optional)
- Twin needles to finish your hems (optional)
- Wooly nylon thread to finish your hems (optional)
Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.
