im making a cheerleader uniform for my almost three year old granddaughter but how can I make the pattern using the adult pattern?
I will be making video lessons in the future covering how to draft patterns for children. In the mean time you can draft your own pattern using the same techniques that I use in the pattern making videos, except you don't need to draw the side but darts. The back of the neckline should be lowered only 1 cm instead of two along the top of the center back line. The shoulder slope on the front pattern should be lowered by 1.5 cm, instead of 3 cm. On the back pattern the shoulder slope should be lowered by 2 cm, instead of four. Since the bodice on a three year old child is about half the length of an adult.
I suggest that you sew the outfit using muslin first, to check the fit.
Hope this helps.
