Leggings pattern testers - 48cm-72cm tallFULL Thanks

Post by Darny » Tue Mar 22, 2011 11:45 am

Wanting several testers with babies in cloth nappies between the heights of 48cm and 72cm to test a leggings/ tights pattern
Suitable for two way stretch fabrics only - such as cotton lycra.

Testers need to be able to
* sew up garment and test sizing with a week of receiving the pattern
* sew a simple pair of one piece pants without instructions (inside leg seams, crotch seam, hem and elastic casing)
* provide clear feedback as to the sizing and fit - would like the garment tried over bulky and slim fit cloth nappies if possible - and an indication of the age, weight and height of the child tried on.

To test the pattern you will need
*an overlocker or sewing machine which will sew a stretch stitch
*be able to open a PDF and print it

thanks!

Edited to add - there is no guarantee these will fit over cloth nappies - I'm working from a new set of measurements which is why I need testers to figure out the accuracy and ease for cloth nappy wearers.

I have leggings on the list to make for my niece who I think will be in that size range.
Happy to try out your pattern as one pair.

I'd love to test if the thicker PP cotton knit lycra would be suitable, K is 4.5mths old, 66cm (though a lot of her 91st percentile height is in her torso) 6.5kgs.

ETA: reread first post and I'm guessing these are legging leggings as opposed to the bootleg pant type that I initially visualised, I probably have some lighter cotton lycra that would be more suitable

Yes they are leggings/ tights not bootlegs, will be fiddling with the styles once the fit over nappies is sorted :D
