    To help you with your pre-release fabric shopping, here are the fabric requirements for the new Nature Walk Pullover + Knit Pants sewing pattern.

    Wondering if this is a slimmer fitting top? The chest measurements seem smaller than most of the other patterns. Maybe I should go up to 2T rather than 18-24M (in cutting, I see the fabric requirements are the same)?

    I agree, Nicole – it’s easy to roll up the sleeves!

    We’ve changed the pattern envelope formatting a bit, so the body measurement chart is now printed on the back envelope and the finished measurements are printed on the instruction sheets. We thought it would be more useful when deciding which size to make. Finished garment measurements will be on the website when the patterns become available. I hope that helps!

    I do like this top pattern, especially now I have seen the line drawings ( I find this gives me more of an idea, then seeing it made up )

    I am not a big fan of polar fleece, but I think this would make a lovely pull over in wool grubber fabric and I think it is dressy enough to wear over little dresses.

    It does look like it will be very versatile in its make up. I’m very much looking forward to giving it a try with different fabrics for differing times of year.

    Any hints for this pattern? Can we use other stretch material for the bottoms? I want to do knits for sure, but would like to try a stretch denim too maybe? Putting my fabric queue together!!

    I wouldn’t suggest stretch wovens for the pants. The knits need to have at least 25% stretch, so it would have to be a VERY stretchy woven to work. In addition to the fabrics listed on the envelope, I think terry cloth might work. But definitely stick with knits for starters.

    Liesl, I’m very happy that you’ve swapped the location of the body measurements and finished measurements. I often wish that they were switched. If only you had room put them both on the envelope, that would be perfect!
