Knit fabric- light to medium weight cotton. It can be interlock, jersey or double knit. If you would like your ribbing pieces to be contrasting in color, just make sure to choose a fabric similar in weight.
For a 45” or 60” wide fabric, you will need 1/2 a yard for sizes preemie through 9-12 and 7/8 of a yard for sizes 12-18 through 5-6.
Supplies- Knit Fabric, polyester thread & 1/2 yard of 1 1/2″ wide knit ribbing*
* Make your own knit ribbing by taking a knit fabric and cutting 1 1/2” wide strips along the cross-wise grain. You can either use your main body fabric or use a contrasting knit fabric
