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.

This pattern also comes with a projector file for use with a projector in your home.
Notions: You will need 5/8” or 1” Fold Over Elastic for this pattern. You will need about 2 yards, but please reference the cut chart for exact measurements. You will need bra strap loops and adjusters if making the adjustable strap option.
Fabric: Please choose a fabric with 4-way 50% stretch and great recovery. 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.
