Patterns to fit a teen with a small c…
My daughter’s measurement equal those on a size 7 child’s pattern.She wants clothes that match her peers, but all the teen and junior patterns are way too big. Is there a way to adapt the patterns or do I have to draft new patterns.
Several of the Butterick and Simplicity patterns for younger
girls look like they would work for your daughter. (Not the
dressy clothing which is heavy on the princess look, but the
casual stuff ) long skinny skirts with slits, bootleg pants,
skinny t's. Just add cargo pockets to the side seams and she
will be all set.
*Darlene,My sone is also very on the slim side. When I cut shorts or a sweatshirt out for him I will often use various cutting lines. For example, I'll cut the waist width of an 8, the crotch of a 10, the leg hems at 10, hip at 8. You get the idea. For a top you may need to cut the shoulder width of a smaller size but armhole depth and sleeve lenght of a larger. Am I making sense or have I had too much caffeine this morning?
