Fabric/Pattern Pairing

Many of these fabrics can easily crossover these suggested pairings depending on the personality of the garment you are creating. Oftentimes using a heavyweight knit for a typically lightweight fabric garment (or visa versa!) can create a whole new look.

A Note About Recovery

Imagine holding the fabric with two hands, stretching it, then letting go.

- Snappy fabric will snap back to its shape quickly and not show any indication that it was stretched.

- Good recovery fabric will recover but not snap when released.

- Soft recovery fabrics will slowly recover its original shape with no snap at all.

The snappier the fabric the less wearing ease it will offer. So, if you are using a snappy fabric, your pattern needs to be a bit larger (around) to give more room. If the fabric has soft recovery, a garment will fit larger.
The best way to get the fit you want using knit fabrics is to:

a) Use the Perfect Sizing Worksheet to figure out the ease in the pattern, fabric and take your measurements into consideration.

b) Make a sample garment using a knit with similar recovery.

c) Choose the pattern size using your upper bust measurement and add to the side seams and pin fit the garment side seams.
