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, another file containing the copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces, as well as a projector file. 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 medium to heavy weight knit fabric with 40% 4-way stretch. The bodice requires good revocery. Triblend, ribbed knits, bamboo lycra, and similar fabrics will all work very well.

Great pattern, easy to sew with only 1 seam and bindings to do. I love it. Great too for summer or under a nice cardi.
So many options with this pattern and even more if you feel creative 😉 First time making a garment with build in bra and I am in love. Great tutorial, easy to follow.
