    Default Material Girls HELP!

    Hello girls,

    What is a good material and gsm for maternity tshirts? I want as close to 100% cotton as possible and obviously with a bit of stretch.



    Thank you.

    I think cotton lycra is about 95% cotton/5% elastane ..... you'll just need to make sure you set your sewing machine to stretch stitch, otherwise it will all unravel the first time you stretch it.

    Thanks hun! Its through a manufacturer so they would know that right? So 95% cotton/5% lycra is the way to go?

    I've just double-checked all of my maternity shirts Natalie... most are cotton/elastane (some 95%/5%, some 93%/7%), and I also have a few that are viscose/elastane or viscose/spandex or cotton/spandex (95%/5%).

    They've all been really comfy, and cool over a Brisbane summer, and have stretched OK to accommodate my enormous belly
