All files are PDF files that can be printed at home on Letter or A4 sized paper. Each pattern includes one file for the pattern and print-at-home pieces, and another file containing the layered copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces. We’ve placed the pattern pieces on individual layers so you can print only the size(s) you need, saving you on paper and ink. This pattern also comes with a projector file for use with a projector in your home.
You will need a knit fabric with 4-way 50% stretch for this pattern, but be wary of Rayon Spandex, Bamboo Spandex or other fabrics that have a tendancy to grow when they hang or stretch.
Your bodice may grow baggy and your neckline may not lay flat when using fabrics with poor recovery.
Ideal fabrics: ribbet knit, cotton lycra, DBP, athletic knits, and similar fabrics.
Notions: You will need snaps, 1/4” elastic, and light-weight interfacing for the Bubble Romper snap placket.
