Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.
Highly recommend fabric with good drape:
Rayon, viscose, silk, chiffons and satins.
We recommend using self made bias tape option to finish the neckline if your Wingspan Top is sewn in a sheer fabric (like a chiffon). A neck facing can be used if the fabric is opaque (not sheer).

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here.
3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.
You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.
4. Link to the instructional video
The video provides guidance on sewing the french seam and tips to ensure you are sewing the right edges for the underarm (this is less obvious as there are no shoulder seams).
The PAH Print-at-home pattern tile file is 20 pages of A4 or US Letter.
The large scale AO size for Print Shops is 2 pages
