The Nova pattern is a knit jumpsuit with four views. All views have a fully faced neckline and armholes. Views A and B have a wide elastic waistband and inseam pockets. Views C and D have a straight fit through the waist and attached front pockets. Views A and C are a short romper length while Views B and D are long with an elastic casing at the ankle. Light to medium weight knit fabrics with 20% or more stretch such as cotton interlock, T-shirt jersey, and merino wool jersey. Less stable knits with a lot of stretch like rayon or bamboo should be used with caution as they may affect fit.
This pattern works best in light to medium weight knits with at least 20% stretch. I prefer stable knits like cotton interlock or t-shirt jersey. You can also use slinkier knits like rayon or bamboo, just know that these fabrics have a tendency to grow as you sew them so you may need to size down, especially in the height, to accommodate.
