Please choose a fabric with 2-way 40% stretch. 4-way stretch will provide better ease of movement and comfort, but isn’t required. Most fabric weights will be okay to use for this pattern, but be wary of Rayon Spandex, Bamboo Spandex or other fabrics that have a tendancy to grow when they hang.You will also need a fabric with 4-way 50% stretch for the waistband. This fabric should have great recovery.
