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. Additionally, we provide a layered projector file with calibration lines for convenience.
This pattern is designed for light to medium weight knit fabric with at least 50% 4-way stretch. You will need 1” elastic for the wasitband if you choose that option.
