We recommend referring to both the garment measurements and the body measurements when selecting a size, regardless of what size you wear in ready-to-wear clothing. The Teddy Dress is a wide loose fit through the bust and shoulder, so we recommend paying particular attention to the bust measurement. Patterns are drafted for an approx. height of 5'7" / 172cm. You may also wish to lengthen or shorten the body and sleeve hem depending on your height and personal preference.

Fabric Yield Recommendations

Recommended Fabric + Supplies

Fabric
The Teddy Dress is designed for light to medium weight knit fabrics. We recommend merino jersey, cotton knits, viscose or bamboo knits. Take care to ensure your fabric is not too thick, as the seams around the shoulder, neckline and gathered waist can become too bulky.

Interfacing
Adding a small strip of interfacing along the side seam pocket entry area is optional, and can help to provide stability for light weight knits.

Thread
You will need at least one 100m spool of thread if using a regular domestic sewing machine, and 4-6 additional threads if overlocking/serging. Note that if finishing with a coverseam or the twin needle setting on your sewing machine, you may need additional threads.

Mobilon Elastic
This is an optional extra. If you choose to add mobilon elastic to your shoulder and waist seams, it will help to retain the shape for longer. You will need up to 2.5m of mobilon for this pattern, depending on the size you choose.

Tools
For maximum longevity we highly recommend sewing your Teddy Dress using an overlocker or serger. It can also be completed with a regular domestic sewing machine with zigzag stitch capability and a twin needle setting.

You will also require an iron, a sharp pair of sewing scissors and pins.
