You can use any kind of woven fabric for this pattern. The final look of the garment will depend on the type of fabric you choose, though. This version are not suitable for jersey fabrics.

Fitting:

I recommend that you always make a muslin before you cut the fashion fabric, to make sure your finished garment will fit you perfectly. Find the fitting guide here.

Each pattern piece is marked with a capital letter. On the cutting layout plan, you’ll find the same capital letters so that you can easily see which pattern pieces to use for the version you’ve chosen.
