The wait is over, finally you have new, larger sizes for the kids!
What separates this pattern from the old one, is that this features two back pieces instead of just one + a gusset. This is to improve mobility for the older childrens movements.
And, we have added side seam pockets!
110-170 (Measurements in centimetres and conversion chart to inches are included).
For kids 43-67″ tall/3y-16y
French terry with about 50% stretch.
Jersey with the same stretch amount works as well.
With a smart solution, the collar narrows down and follows the zipper all the way down to the crotch, also acting protection from the zipper.
The zipper is sewn together with the zipper protection (placket).
Unlike the first version for smaller children, this tutorial includes instructions for how to finish the collar without a raw edge on the wrong side of it. This is slightly harder, but you may still make it the old way if you’d prefer (and vice versa, sewing the old pattern the new way).
