Main fabric: French terry, sweatshirt, or any medium weight knit material with a bit of stretch.
Contrast fabric: (so many options!) Jersey, t-shirt material, lightweight french terry, rib knit, ponte roma, double knit.
It’s also a great opportunity to stash bust and use up some bits left over from previous projects! You can use the same material as the main fabric, however, the cuffs will have a closer fit.
Fabric requirements using 1.5m (60″) fabric:
Ava – Cara
Main: 1.5m (1.64 yards)
Contrast 0.6m (0.66 yards)
Dee – Gia
Main: 1.8m (2 yards)
Contrast 0.8m (0.87 yards)
– 50cm x 14cm fusible interfacing
– 3 buttons for the cowl (Example uses 19mm Prym cover buttons)
– 1 small button for the inner cowl. It will not be seen and does not need to match the others. A good opportunity to use a spare dress shirt button!
High Bust: 31″ – 43″
To get your High Bust measurement, measure around your body, directly under your underarms.
Fitting tips for larger busts/cup sizes: You would then do a Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) only if your full bust measurement is in a higher size category to your high bust.
