Size accurate testing.

I wish I had kept a sewing journal when I made outfits for my kids. Now that I'm digging out old patterns, it would be handy to have some documentation on what fits and what doesn't.

Now that I have a sewing blog, I can keep the journal I should have kept.

Here's the size accurate testing of the outfits I've made over that past few months...........

Out of print....Style 2439 18 months

Fits Caitlin perfectly, with a little room to spare. She's 9 Kg (20 lbs.) 9 months old and presently wear 12-18 months size in store bought clothing.
Oliver + S Birthday Party Dress 12 months size.

Fits Caitlin like a glove. She won't be able to wear it much longer.

Children's Corner "Carol" 12 month size.

Fit's perfectly with a little room to spare.
Mystery dress with mystery foot in photo. Parker's Apron from Creative Needle Nov/Dec 2004,
12-18 month size.
Fits Caitlin perfectly.

Vogue 7628 size small.

Too short from crotch to bib front. Too wide in the sides. Poor fitting, although small was the right size to make it up. The pattern design was ..... clown-like. Say hello to the garbage can!


  1. I love the coat. What a gorgeous rabbit on the front. The dress is pretty too. You sew beautifully.

  2. Thank you for the kind compliment.

  3. Caitlin is adorable in all of your creations. Too bad about the romper.
