Choice of fabric
A light- to mid-weight woven cotton, linen or wool fabric is recommended. Make sure to choose a soft fabric, as the gathers of the elastic waistband will look bulky if the fabric is too stiff. Fabrics like twill, tweed, light-weight denim, wool-suitings or soft corduroy will work well.
Both models are wearing Ivo made from wool suiting fabric, paired with two different versions of Maggi sweater.
