Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Knot Your Average Shirt and Dress Pattern(on sale from January 29 -February 9 with code: KNOT at checkout)
  • Fabric: This pattern requires knits with at least 25% stretch.  I prefer something with a Lycra blend, especially if I’m make the breastfeeding option, but other options include jersey or interlock.  Lycra blends such as rayon, polyester, cotton and modal with work beautifully.  I do not recommend directional printers.  There is a section under the knot on the upper bodice that will be upside down.  If it is a small print, it won’t be noticeable.

One of our sponsors, Simply By Ti Fabrics is graciously offering 20% off from now until Feb 4 with code: 5oo4sal at checkout!  So, go there and get the fabric you need!  I’ve already received my fabric from Simply By Ti Fabrics, so I’m ready to roll!  I can’t wait for you all to see how lovely it is!

    Very excited for this! I would like to figure out a shelf bra front for the inside of this top someday. It is one of my favorites!
