Has anyone tried this pattern yet? Looks interesting despite the naming.

Do you have a source for the material? I did a search & I'm not finding a source for the 4 way stretch, powenet, etc.

Anyone know about the sizing of the pattern? It says 1x to 6x but starts with hip measurement at 55 which is larger than 1x in other patterns. I'd like to make this to wear under a knit dress pattern I have - if I ever get brave enough to make and wear it.

The detailed written instructions explain how to baste the side seams for a fitting, so the sizing is not terribly important. Besides, the amount of compression that the girdle will provide depends on the type of fabric that you use, as well as the sizing.

Two more souces are the Fabric Depot and Richard the Thread.
