This pattern was designed with adventurous beginners in mind. Even if you haven’t sewn with knit fabrics before, you will be able to tackle this project in a few hours, and if you get stuck anywhere, you can check our video sewalong for assistance.
The Suzy dress is designed for knit fabrics with two-way stretch. We recommend using medium weight knits with at least 20% stretch, such as cotton jersey, cotton spandex or ponte di Roma. It is best to stay away from very thin and very stretchy fabrics, especially if you are making the dress versions, as these fabrics tend to stick to your body and aren’t very flattering. In addition, knits with more weight to them are are much easier to handle and work with, so keep that in mind if you are a beginner in working with these types of fabrics.
As for the size range, all our patterns come in sizes UK 4-28 (US 0-24, EU 32-56)
