The Manhattan pattern is a very fitted skirt that has to be sewn in knit/jersey with elastane. The pattern includes four variations: the mini knit skirt with classic or scalloped hem and the pencil knit skirt with classic or scalloped hem.
Sizes 34 to 48 (see sizes chart)
medium to heavy knit fabric with elastane. Viscose knit is not recommended. It is necessary to choose a jersey fabric that gets back to its original shape after stretching, hence the necessity of elastane (lycra, spandex).
Prefer a jersey with at least 25 % elasticity (ideally 30 %). Non stretch fabrics are not suitable for this pattern.
