IMPORTANT! When purchasing fabric, please account for shrinkage and buy 5% more than required.

2. Lightweight knit interfacing, 140cm (55”) wide, for all sizes and heights – 0.1m (1/8yd). Can be replaced with premade straight-grain fusible stay tape – 0.1m (1/8yd).

3. Fold-over elastic binding, 1cm (3/8”) wide – 1.5–3m (1 5/8–3 1/4yd), depending on the size. Measure the pattern pieces to find the exact length. (This premade fold-over elastic is often used in lingerie making. It can be replaced with 1cm (3/8”) wide clear elastic.)

4. Matching thread – 5 spools (1 spool for the sewing machine + 4 spools for the overlocker).

- sewing machine for construction

- overlocker for construction and finishing raw edges. This may be replaced with a stretch overlock stitch or a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine (overlock or zigzag stitch width 2–3mm, stitch length 2.5mm)

- coverstitch or coverlock machine for finishing the neckline edges, garment and sleeve hems. It can be replaced with a twin needle on a regular sewing machine that can do a zigzag stitch

- ballpoint machine needles.

Important! We recommend using specialty needles when working with knit fabrics (for example, STRETCH, SUPER STRETCH, JERSEY, etc.). These are ballpoint needles, so they part the threads of the fabric you are stitching rather than piercing them.
