Sewing a muslin/toile first is always recommended since it allows you to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments first. When sewing with knit fabrics, I recommend sizing down by at least one size, depending on the elasticity of your fabric.
The Story Behind The Name: 'Yoalli' (pronounciation [yowali]) is derived from classical Nahuatl 'Yohualli' and translates to 'night'. It is also a first name chosen for both men and women. Yohualli-Ehecatl (night wind) is a deity belonging to the Ometeotl Complex. Ometeotl is a name used to refer to the pair of Aztec deities that, in Aztec belief, are the primordial parents of deities, humans and creation itself. Yohualli-Ehecatl represents the mystery of the night and is also connected indirectly to death, taking careless wanderers at night with him. Occasionally, some would return and be gifted with a long and healthy life. According to a book I read once, people even built benches for Yohualli-Ehecatl to rest upon to calm his stormy character and increase the chances of getting his favour.
