I have had this lovely thin bamboo knit for awhile and just decided to make Vogue 1261 (Alice+Olivia tunic) with it. I just realized it is four-way stretch and the pattern calls for moderate stretch knits only. Anyone know of an appropriate pattern?

I think you can make Vogue 1261 in the fabric you're describing.

If you do use the bamboo knit, go down a size or two because of the increased stretch in the fabric. That bamboo should give you some great draping for this pattern.

I just made this pattern, view A with the raglan sleeves. The sleeves seems to have twisted on me-I have wrinkles on the sleeve. I need to explore the reason for this but I think it is due to the raglan. I used a moderately stretch material. The sizing seemed pretty accurate. It went together really well. I bet it would be very nice in a bamboo knit.
I will make it again. HTH

I made view C...I love the top but I think the pattern runs a little big. You might want to consider going down a size.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will go ahead with the Vogue pattern and size it down a bit. Patternreview people are the best!
