Ottobre mag sizing

Post by Dunners » Sun Nov 18, 2007 6:39 pm

Can anyone break down the approximate age sizes of these? (I know that genetics have a large role to play, I just have little idea of average height for age)

(* ages from the Pumpkin Patch website as suggested by CGM are in the brackets)

Babies
50 (small newborn)
56 (newborn)
62 (000 0-3 months)
68 (00 3-6 months)
74 (76 cm is 0 6-12 months, so 74 around 6-9 months)
80 (going by above, 80 around 9-12 months?)
86 (84 cm is 1 y. James at 18 months is wearing clothes that says 86 cm)
92 (2 y)

Toddlers
92 (2 y)
98
104 (100 is 3 y)
110 (108 is 4 y)
116 (114 is 5 y)
122 (120 is 6 y)

Boys/Girls
128 (125 is 7 y)
134 (130 is 8 y, 135 is 9 y)
140 (140 is 10 y)
146 (145 is 11 y)
152 (150 is 12 y)
158
164
170

Leanne, why don't you try the pumpkin patch sizing chart in their catalogue? Not sure if they have it on the website, but definitely used to be in their mail out.

You're a clever cookie! Have just updated the OP with the measurements.

Right, off to trace & cut the patterns! Woohoo!

PP sizes seem to be a little different.

European sizing

74 is generally 1 yo

Maybe work forward and backward from this.

Newborn is normally 62 with the 50 being for very small babies.

They suggest you measure the height of child and go by that...hard though when you are sewing for a gift / surprise.

I think euro sizing is smaller.. ie 50cm is considered std newborn size for them.
If its a gift you could always check the percentiles chart in the plunket book. It will give you an idea (especially if you know that they are big/small/average for age iykwim)

What issues do you have Leanne??? - what are you planning on making???

I just love the hoodie with the circular pockets in the latest issue.. thats my next project I think.

Yeah, I'm making pants for my nephews for Christmas - I have general info (grr to siblings who don't reply to emails asking for height info :evil: Mel did though ;))

I have borrowed that Mag off Macca - I've just traced the pants in the photo with the circular hoodie for the 2.5 year size. Next are the pants in the cords/denim in the same book from memory.

I am going to place an order for my own set soon, I just have to decide on back issues. I'm so impressed with them!

I made a top/skirt set for my SS gift last week - totally love that pattern and will make Em one after the New Year. Now to decide on what to do for the raffle - I keep changing my mind on that one - size, unisex v boy or girl. Gaah! Time is limited so I just need to decide & do it!

The sizings are all done by height, as are PP and JK sizings and Burda and Kwik Sew. For Sam I Make the 98 cm size patterns as he is over 90 cm tall even though he is not yet 2.

What about womans ? I am 34 inch but acc to their patterns i need their 36 but when i traced out the pattern for a t- shirt creative 301 or 3 ? it looks tiny ! i think it will fit my skinny 12 year old ..... so .....how have others found the womans sizing ? Is it consistent ? once i get the size of the T sorted will that be the size i use for every top ? Is the womans T in the first womans book different- this one is not long in body at all ......
Or am i going to have to play around with every pattern to get the fit right ....
