Thank you!!! I needed this chart! :) Most of my sewing is for older kids. I've posted a link to your post on Craft Gossip:http://sewing.craftgossip.com/freebie-childrens-measurement-chart-sizes-3t-12/2013/08/10/--Anne
Thanks Anne! I haven't had any use for the larger sizes since my munchkin's are still tiny, so you'll have to let me know how they work for you. I wouldn't want them to be too far off!
Thank you Toni! Pinned for future reference ;)MammaNene @ SergerPepper
You're very welcome Irene! Feel free to let me know if you find any big errors.

This is very helpful. However, do you have a chart or listing of standard ease for children's clothing? I do a lot of altering of patterns and design my own, but have not found this information anywhere. Would I use the same amount of ease that you would use for adults?
Hi Ann, That's a great question! Unfortunately the answer isn't in any of my design materials, and I think the reason is because ease amounts are such a personal preference. That is one of the major behind the huge difference in the same sized item at different stores. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. It's a shame "standard sizes" aren't actually a bit more standard. :/
Thanks for creating this Toni, I just downloaded this wonderfully helpful chart! More sewing predicted in my future.
This is great! Any chance you might add the boy stuff?
Sorry Cheryl, all the numbers we got in college were only for the girls. I guess they never really expected up to make anything for boys or men, because they kinda just glossed over them like they didn't even exist. If I ever come across the necessary info though I'll be sure to add it.
This is geat info thanks! Any idea where i could get a diagram to match these details, just for a precise indication of where the measurements are taken? Thaks Jemma
Hi Jemma! I haven't put together a diagram yet, but you can check out Melissa's video here... http://mellysews.com/2014/08/how-to-measure-kids-sew-clothes.html Most Sewers/Home Pattern Designers will never really need many of theses numbers. You can do quite a lot with only the most basic of measurements. Good Luck!
This is super helpful as I get started crafting my seven nieces' and nephews' Christmas pajamas. Many thanks!
Thanks for handy chart! I'm living in Hanoi, Vietnam at the moment and want to have silk kimono-style robes made for my nieces as a surprise. They do sell off-the-rack robes but not in small sizes, and usually satin, not silk. At $2.50-3.30 a meter, why not do it myself?! They're going to love them!!
