Envelope tee shirt testers - 48cm-92cm tall wanted.

Post by Darny » Wed Apr 13, 2011 7:21 pm

Wanting several testers in each size between the heights of 48cm and 92cm to test an envelope tee shirt pattern - you can make short or long sleeved
Suitable for knit fabrics - tee shirting, merino with some stretch, cotton lycra etc

Testers need to be able to
* sew up garment and test sizing with a week of receiving the pattern
* sew a simple envelope tee with minimal instructions (just written, no pictures at this stage)
* provide clear feedback as to the sizing and fit (to snug, too loose, too tight over the head, too short, too long etc) - and an indication of the age, weight and height of the child tried on, plus ideal tee shirt length and arm length of your child - shoulder to finished long sleeve length over outside of bent arm.

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 - as with my last patterns I'm still testing the sizings.

Please EMAIL me with your email address rather than PM so I can send the pattern directly. Pattern is still maybe day away from being ready to send depending how much I get done tonight.

Anywhere around the 56-64cm range and I think 92cm?
But if you want to give it a go in another size it's always good to have comparisons :mrgreen:

Sorry share, just wanted to check, what is the equivalent biggest size? My kids are in size 3 and 4 but are both taller than 92cm ...

I would put the size as a large size 2 probably, the pants were quite large but the tee's measurements don't seem huge to me, I'll make one up as soon as I can get near the printer and give you an idea of the actual size.
Will be making larger ordinary tee's soon, just trying to get some tiny stuff done first.

Claire, send me your email please

I can do a 92 for you, but won't be able to get it sewn up until second week of the holidays.
Let me know if you would still like me to make a 92cm

How is the neck done? I'm a bit scared of envelop neck lines and usually edge them with FOE. Could possibly be pursuaded to try something around 66cm size - 5mths old but long in the body

ok iv just sewed up a NB and holding it up against another NB top i have (it says on the tag to fit -9lb or 4.1kg)

the sleaves- are the same lenth
- are abit (maybe 1cm when lyeing flat on top of) wider than my one, makeing the arm holes quiet big

body - is the same lenth (maybe another cm or 2 wouldnt hurt
- is much wider than my one (maybe 3cm when lyeing on top)
- makes the neck very wide, i would maybe trim a 1 or 2 cm of the center fold on the printed pattern

enverlope neck- easy to do, and sits nice (even with my dodgy binding :oops: )

il try get a pic after the kids are in bed.

hope this helps
feel free to ask any questions and let me know if you want me to try another one with a cm or 2 taken out of the center

and il do a bigger size to fit miss 2 1/2 tomorrow :mrgreen:

nah don't worry about taking any out of the middle, I've used 'easy fit' measurements, think I'll go back to the closer fit and try again - the easy fit would probably be good for chunky monkeys like A was (he had to wear 3 sizes too large to get enough room in the body)
