You will need to bring:
2m of cotton (light drill or heavy cotton) for inner lining
1m Lining Fabric (I find quilting cotton is the best as it is soft and strong.)
1-2m of Outer Fabric )you can bring any fabric you feel may be suitable for the outside and we can see if it will work for you). You may want to stay away from thin, delicate, or large print fabric and get 2m if you have a tartan or a check. *
