|WARNING: the View B yardages listed on the pattern envelope for 58" wide fabrics MAY NOT BE CORRECT for sizes 16+ if using pre-washed shrinkable fabrics. You may need to use the yardages for 44"/45" fabric (View B, 2 1/4 yards).|
I'm cutting it out right now, and wanted to post that bit of info immediately. I'm using a linen blend, which I pre-washed, and which shrunk to about 51" wide. This is not wide enough to accommodate both skirt pieces as shown in the 58"/60" cutting layout. The skirt pieces need to be laid out on the fabric end to end, like in the diagram for 45" fabric.
Which means, instead of 1 3/8 yard of 60" fabric (view B), you'll need 2 1/4 yard. Hope you see this before you buy the fabric. Yikes.
Hope this helps. Actual review to come when the garment is finished.
