What about woven fabric? The pattern is designed for knit fabric but it can be sewn with woven fabric. To make it with woven lengthen the straps about a half an inch. The leg casing will look twisted while sewing, but should look fine in the end since it bunches up anyway with the elastic.


MATERIALS:

  • Knit fabric: We suggest a medium weight cotton/lycra jersey knit. AMOUNT NEEDED- 0.5 yards for sizes Preemie to 18-24M, 0.75 yards for size 2-3T
  • 0.5 yards of 1" elastic
  • 1 yard of 0.5" elastic
  • 2 sets of snaps: We suggest size 14 (aka: 5/16" or 8mm)
  • Lightweight fusible interfacing. AMOUNT NEEDED- 0.12 yards for all sizes

MACHINES:

  • Sewing machine
  • Overlock machine / Serger – If you don't own one, you can use a small zig-zag stitch in place of the serged seam.
