Knit version: Knit fabrics with at least 20% 4-way stretch are suitable. Cotton jersey, rib knits and lightweight french terry would be great. Generally, sturdier knits are easier to work with and drapier, thinner knits are a little more difficult.
Woven version: Woven fabrics including linen, cotton, rayon and silk. The fabric you choose will affect how your top looks. If you choose a drapey fabric like a rayon or silk you will have more of a blouse-y look. If you choose something like linen it will have a more structured vibe.
45″ (1.2 m) wide fabric: 1.33 – 1.88 yd (1.2 – 1.7 m) // 54-60″ (1.4-1.5 m) wide fabric: 1 – 1.88 yd (0.9 – 1.7 m).
1/2 yard (.5 metres) lightweight fusible interfacing.
