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.
Please choose a fabric with 4-way 50% stretch and great recovery.
For more support, you will want to use Power Net (not power mesh).
You will also need 1” elastic. While braided, non-roll elastic is best, most 1” elastics will work and have enough support for this pattern.
If you are making the skirt, you will want to have 1/4″ braided elastic on hand as well. You will need about a yard.
Ideal fabrics for this pattern include, but are not limited to athletic knits such as Athletic Brushed Poly, Supplex, Yoga knit, and most heavier swim knits. Cotton lycra will also work, but if you are using the bra for activities where you will be sweating, cotton blends will not dry as quickly and may be less comfortable.
