1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: McCall's 5562 help with shorts on: May 01, 2009 12:10:20 PM

I ripped out the seam and removed the elastic...added about 6 inches to the top, then refolded and re-threaded the elastic...
The top is too large across the back, so I put in a tuck/pleat/fold and when she is a little larger i can let it out and she will still fit

It's 1/2" elastic.

The top front was fine, but the back ended up being about 3" bigger than i needed after I got it on her.
Sigh.  I just doubled it over and figure when she gets a little larger I can let it out and get more wear, but it looks pretty tacky, so what to do???

How would I figure out how wide to make the add on?  Elastic width + inches needed above current level + seam allowance?HuhHuh

Thank you so much for the reply.  I am totally stumped!

Please help me with the shorts, I don't know what I did wrong, but the inseam for the shorts, after i added the elastic top, sits lower than my daughters' panties.  She said but mom, I don't like a short wedgie!

I am a very novice sewer, so i took a lot of time and re-read everything, but somehow i need HELP!
Thanks is advance for any help in lengthening that part.
