Over the weekend I made DD a singlet from an ottobre pattern.
I measured her height - she is 92cm.
The pattern had a 92cm size, and so I sewed that one up.
I tried it on straight away, because I was soooo proud of my efforts!! The binding around the neck and arms was very easy to do - and it looks professional too!
Anyway, the fit was good (perhaps a little on the small side) - BUT.... I struggle getting it over her head!!
I need to make her some more, so was thinking the next size up, which is a 98cm (but that sounds really big!).
Is it the sewing which has caused the head hole to be rather tight?
Am I meant to use a special stitch for sewing stretchy material?
I am also in the middle of making a hoody/jacket for DD, and that size is also 92cm. We will see how that goes!
I am also making a hoody for DS, and I measured him. He is 104cm. The pattern starts at 104cm, and the next size up is 110cm.
Which size should I make? 110cm sounds waaay too big, but I am also not wanting to make something that is going to be on the smallish side.
TIA for your help!
