which fabric ?

The "CAVALCARE" jumpsuit can be cut in many different fabrics (cotton, linen, viscose, polyester, tencel). Viscose and tencel will make a more fluid and confortable jumpsuit, whereas cotton will add a slight stiffness (this is better for beginners).
Before buying your fabric, refer to the chart underneath to know the length and width needed to cut out your pattern.



*Minimum width : This measure is the minimum width of fabric that you will need to cut out your pattern. Unlike more conventionnel patterns, the zero waste patterns are designed for a specific width, covering all of the fabric. You will need to take in to account this factor when buying your fabric.
For example : If you are a 36, the fabric width should be at least 140cm. If you are a 42, it should be at least 148cm.

**Minimum length : This measure is the length of fabric you will need to cut out the dress. Depending on your height, or what you fancy day to day,
you can choose to add 5, 10 or 15cm to this length to make your jumpsuit longer than the original pattern (used for the photos)

supplies needed

To make the "CAVALCARE" jumpsuit, you will need the following materials:
- cotton or polyester thread in the colour of your choice
- A bias in the colour of your choice (2cm width, length see below)

- an elastic band for the bardot neckline (3cm width / 92cm length - depending on your shoulders)

- fusible interfacing to stiffen the belt (optional)
