What fabric should I bring?
The pattern suggests: Light to medium-weight knits with at least 10% widthwise stretch such as tissue knits, jersey, and sweater knits. Extra fabric may be needed to match plaids, stripes, or one-way print designs.
They have a useful article here, to show you how different fabrics look for this pattern! We recommend taking a look before you decide your fabric! If you haven't sewn (and pattern matched) stripes before then we suggest you choose a plain or patterned fabric that doesn't require matching, so you can focus on learning the skills needed for stretch fabric.
