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 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 is designed for light to medium weight knit fabric with 50% 4-way stretch. The bodice requires good revocery. For the skirt and romper bottom, fabrics like Bamboo, ITY, Rayon Spandex, and similar would be perfect.
Notions: You will need 1″ Elastic for built in support and extra binding or the elastic trim of your choice fro cross-over straps.
