For this pattern, the designer recommends using a medium-weight knit fabric with a content of 95% Cotton, 5% Lycra/Spandex. Having at least 5% Lycra or Spandex allows the fabric to have elasticity and bounce back to its original shape without getting stretched out over time. Other suitable fabrics for this pattern are Double Brushed Polyester, French Terry, and Rayon Spandex
It’s essential to use a fabric with at least a 50% stretch. Fabric must have stretch both horizontally and vertically.
Make sure to prewash and dry your knit fabric before cutting and sewing it! This will prevent your fabric from shrinking after you’ve sewn it.
When sewing this pattern you can use a variety of different techniques to finish the seams.
First, you can use the stretch stitch on your sewing machine. This looks like a lightning bolt and allows seams to have more give, so the stitches don’t pop when stretched out.
If you don’t have this option, use a zig-zag stitch and narrow the width of the stitch.
The final option is to finish the seams with a serger. The serger creates a seam that is cut and finished in one step. This option creates a more professional-looking finish.
