Recent statistics have indicated that nearly nine million American children are categorized as “overweight”. Buying or making clothes for the plus size child can be a very stressful and difficult process as there is literally NO standard size that fits properly.
We are excited about our line of clothing patterns for plus size children that we designed according to actual REAL measurements of plus size children, so that patterns will fit the majority of plus size children, are now available at http://SewWithSarah.com.
Compare our pattern measurements to your child’s and you’ll see which size range you’ll need. Each pattern has an enlarged view (click on the pattern number link), which gives the measurement chart for each size range, as well as the fabric requirements for each pattern.
We have a wide variety of pattern styles for plus size girls and boys that you can see in the following categories:
My friend has a 9 year old daughter who has a 36″ chest, 34″ tummy and 38″ hips. Buying pre-made clothes for her is impossible since a skirt that fits in the waist has a length that goes past the feet, and long sleeves hang several inches below her fingers in order to get a size that fits in the chest and shoulders. My friend decided to try making some clothes, only to find similar problems with patterns. Thinking the new “plus” sizes would fit, she was disappointed to find that, while a 16 Plus would fit the chest, the “waistline” hung about 2-3 inches below her waist, the skirt length was way too long, the neck and armholes were much too large and the shoulder width fell way off the shoulder. After all, the measurements used in the store-bought patterns are for a “chubby” 16 year old, they’re not designed for an extra chubby 9 year old.
OUR plus size childrens patterns are made from actual plus size childrens’ measurements. These patterns have been an instant hit, as D. Bloss tells us “for the very first time ever, I’m able to make clothing that fits my plus size daughter! The size 10 in your size range 8-10-12 has measurements almost identical to my daughters – it’s almost like you’ve used HER measurements in designing the patterns! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
