Agree with this - O is inbetween sizes (ie a 1-1.5!!) - and I find the legs are HUGE on her
Boyleg type undies with cotten elastine binding like thunderpants ones - they're the only ones that don't gape on my son and my daughter has worn them for years ! We need some patterns like that for our kids :D something that hugs the legs and doesn't go up their bum !
Actually .....a womens one like that with a wider crutch , cotton binding round the legs etc would be good too :oops:

wet weather jacket with a decent adjustable hood
what kind of adjustable?
I'm keen on sorting a good raincoat for my kids so that will hopefully be a sooner rather than later project.
My thoughts on the hood thing...
Most of the children's raincoat patterns (and bought coats for that matter) don't have hoods that sit on the head well when children are moving around.
You can get some that have a drawstring around the opening but they never sit correctly. Once they are tight enough not to move too much they are too constricting and if they aren't tight enough when the child looks left or right they end up looking at the hood because it doesn't move with them.
Ones that have no drawstring at all don't stay up well and also have the same issue when the child turns their head.

I was looking at the hoods on a couple of different jackets and want to try putting a slight peak on the front of the hood (this seems quite common in adult garments) as well as an adjustment in the CB to shorten/lengthen the hood size - ie it means you can get the top edge of the hood adjusted for the right place on the child's head.

This post is a bit old but thought I'd join in!! :smt044

I'm a total beginner sewer but would love a sleeping gown pattern with turn over sleeves (scratchy newborn!! lol) that is easy!

leggins for my merino material, with and without feet

singlets for the merino (big neck style, big armholes), long in the body.. for our icy cold winter nights!!

only have a basic sewing machine, no fancy overlocker etc here :rotfl:

Righto, I'm working on two different styles of tee shirt, and can do gowns the same way
The leggings pattern doesn't have feet, but I could make one that does - it's probably fine for merino,
Singlets - with or without sleeves? (proper singlet style with the big armholes, no sleeves?)

Patterns that are finished should be available by the end of next week (just waiting on a bit more feedback from testers and then will be adding them to the website and launching! woohoo!)

singlets without sleeves, kinda like this http://www.cosytoes.co.nz/cart_products70-1.html but for NB - 1year sizes?

In fact, I'd love everything to be in 0000 - 1 :smt044 :smt005

would fold over sleeves be hard to do on sleep gowns?

You could easily make my pattern out of merino, and the pattern is very much mix and match, so you can have it any way you want as far as hoods, sleeves etc...

Oh me! me!! I know!

hehe. I love my wee man in overalls but unless they are made out of stretchy stuff like knits they *really* don't fit a cloth bum. I'd love an overall pattern that has enough width in the hips and depth in the crotch to fit a cloth bum, without having to size up and have too long legs and shoulders falling off :gaah: :gaah: :gaah:

I adore the baby (pin?) cord and soft denims etc with dome opening for nappy changes.

Pretty please :smt044 :hide:

Bib front overalls with all the pockets etc, or the sleeveless open down the front type, or like the sleeveless type but open at the shoulder?
