I’m not sure if this truly counts as a tip, but I’ve had a few requests for larger kid’s measurements
so I decided to add sizes 7-12 to my previous chart. And since I adore you guys so much,
I’ve also gone and combined all the measurements into a single handy two page printable.
The measurements for sizes 3-6 should work for either boys or girls, but anything above a 6 will only work for girls.
As I’ve mentioned before, these numbers were all taken from various handouts that I received in college,
and unfortunately they must have only expected us to design clothing for little girls.
If you have the appropriate size child readily available please, please, Please check their measurements against the numbers
on the chart before you start drafting or sewing. Every child is different, and I have not actually made garments using all of these
measurements so I can’t attest to their accuracy. Personally I feel that some of the sizes are a little too big, but in my opinion too big is always better than too small.
Also, check to make sure that your printer is set to landscape and that the “fit to page” box is un-checked.
Google should orient the page properly by itself, but it’s always good to double check.
I guess that’s it. Hopefully those of you who are lucky enough to still be sewing for your older girls will find these
extra measurements useful. I can only hope that Aurelia will still enjoy the clothes I make for her for a few more years.
Who knows, she’s around my sketches enough that she might even start designing her own outfits before too long!
Anyway, good luck with your projects, and have a great weekend!
