Suggested Fabric: The Adrianna is designed for wovens, and can be made from a wide variety of fabrics! The sample pictured on the cover is made from a silk charmeuse. It looks fabulous in silk but can also be made in rayon, linen, lightweight cotton, and more! The design lines of this pattern are simple enough that you have room to experiment with fabrics you may not have worked with before!
- 1 1/2 yards (1.4 metres) of ½” wide elastic. Use bra strap elastic if possible. It is stronger and more durable than standard elastic. If you can’t get your hands on bra strap elastic, standard elastic will suffice!
