using a pattern designed for fleece(or fulled fabrics) for non fleece fabrics

lucy brecht | Posted in Patterns on

Any ideas about adjusting a pattern designed for fulled fabrics (like fleece) for use with non fleece/non fulled fabrics?

Obviously you have to make it bigger … but?  Ideas would be welcomed.

    substituting woven for knit??

    I think if the original pattern calls for a knit and you use woven fabric, your garment will be too small.  But if the fabric calls for fleece or fur and you use flat weave that is not fulled, your garment will remain the same size or too big.  I doubt that the garment will be bigger. I think the pattern made fitting allowance for the fleece because fleece fabric is denser so the pattern will be larger or you can't move when you wear it.

    Most fleeces have a bit of stretch.  I would carefully measure the patern in places where it really matters - on me that would be across the back shoulders and through the bust - and compare it to what works for you.
