how to use a pattern made for stretch knits to make a garment from non-stretch material
I have had a hard time finding a pattern I like for a zp-front caftan/robe. The only one I found was for stretch knits, and it is too large for me. How can I modify this pattern to make the caftan in a plush fabric, and a size smaller? I’m not an expert sewer, but not a novice either. I can manage some alterations, but nothing too complicated.
