Fabric Type and Yardage: Around 2 yards depending on length. You can make this Ragland with almost any type of fabric that has 40% stretch such as lightweight sweater Knits, Hacci, French Terry, or Double Brush Polyester work well for these patterns. If you want a lighter weight fabric you can use ITY, Cotton or Rayon Blends. Knits with drape, will give the most flattering silhouette.
