For those who have plus size / overweight children it sometimes can become a nightmare trying to find nice styles that actually would FIT the child. Even the “plus” sizes don’t work because a 16 Plus would be for a somewhat overweight 16 year old, but what happens if the size range on that 16 Plus is what your child has, but he/she is only 8 or 9 years old? An 8 or 9 year old MAY be much larger in the waist, tummy and hip area, but are NOT the 16 Plus size when it comes to shoulders, arm length, dress or pants length, because your child is only 8 or 9 and NOT 16.
At Plus Size Children Patterns, you’ll find patterns that are made according to ACTUAL plus size children’s measurements. Compare the basic difference between the regular commercial patterns and the plus size children patterns:
Commercial Patterns: Size 8, Chest 27, waist 23
Plus Size Children Patterns: Size 8, Chest 34, waist 30
Commercial Patterns: Size 12, Chest 30, waist 25
Plus Size Children Patterns: Size 12, Chest 38, waist 34
As you can see, there is a BIG difference between the “average” size commercial pattern measurements and the Plus Size Children pattern measurements! We at PlusSizeChildren.com spent over 1 1/2 years accumulating the actual measurements of plus size / overweight / obese children from our readers, then put them into a data base so we could put together pattern sizes/ ages in order to make patterns that would fit those in the overweight/obese size ranges.
The above pictures are just a few of the patterns that are available from PlusSizeChildren.com and from PatternsThatFitYou.com. All boys and girls patterns come in size ranges of 4-5-6 or 8-10-12 or 14-16. Each pattern has a variety of different styles such as different necklines, different sleeve styles, different pant lengths, etc. At last you WILL be able to get patterns that fit, and you, as well as thousands of others, can say “Finally it Fits!!”
