Recommended Fabric: 72" Batik Cotton Jersey Knit. Our sample was made using 72" Batik Cotton Jersey Knit - Phoenix in the color of Twilight Blue. We made a a size 12 knee length, no sleeve. For this sample we cut 1 1/2 Yards of our 72" Wide Batik Cotton Jersey Knit. The pattern recommends yardage for 60" wide fabric. When planning yardage using our 72" wide Knit simply measure the length garment you wish to sew and add 5" to it. There is no flare to this hem at all. If making the version with a long sleeve definitely get the yardage stated on the pattern in your size.
Skill Level: Confident Beginner.
Hints & Tips: this pattern is fast and simple when using a serger. A serger is not required to make this garment. Jersey knit does not ravel so if you don't have a serger (yet)feel comfortable using a traditional sewing machine, Jersey needle, and a stretch stitch on your sewing machine.
This pattern is nonrefundable.
