Best fit patterns

October 20, 2016

Not many kids will fit perfectly into the average age/size range. Compare your child’s measurements with the chart on your pattern and choose the best fit size.

 

  • For tops, dresses and coats choose the size that is closest to your child’s chest measurement.

  • For briefs and pants choose the size that is closest to your child’s hip measurement.

 

There will be times when the size chosen may not reflect your child’s height.
It means you will need to lengthen or shorten the pattern pieces.
Remember to adjust both front and back pattern pieces, remember to consider and include seam and hem allowances in the changed pattern piece.

  • For a top or dress; the length from your child’s shoulder to the desired hem length.

  • For a sleeve; measure the length from the top of your child’s shoulder to the desired arm length.

  • For a pant leg; measure the length from your child’s waist to the desired hem length.
