GATHERING WITH ELASTIC: To make this even faster & easier, we’ve also included instructions on how to gather with elastic, including my recommendations on the best elastic to use. A video link is included.
2-way stretch knit fabrics with spandex, good recovery & vertical give can be used but please note that as the bodice is fitted, some 2-way stretch fabrics may sit higher on the body, particularly if they don't have spandex.
Fabric suggestions include Viscose or rayon elastane knits, Double brushed poly (DBP), Single brushed poly (SBP), Stretch knit crepe, Poly elastane knits, Cotton Lycra (recommend soft & not over 180gsm), Bamboo & Modal elastane knits, Cupro, ITY, Wool knits, Sweater knit, Hacci, DTY, Liverpool.
6mm clear elastic to stabilise the gathering & waist. I recommend using Lastin - the frosted clear elastic. It is the least noticeable on Tier 1/2 join.
Note: you can also gather the traditional way if you prefer. In this case, you'll only need elastic for the waist. Woven elastic, knitted elastic, rubber or clear elastic can be use here (not braided elastic as it stretches out of shape).
