1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Good book/instructions for altering patterns on: June 04, 2012 10:06:46 AM
My DD (10) is very hard to fit.  She is about a 20 waist, 18 hips and 8 neck to waist and inseam.  I can't find pants or shorts that fit her.  I am self taught and really need help with altering a pattern.  I don't want her stuck in jogging pants and t-shirts, especially as she goes into the teen years.  Do you have any book or website recommendations for learning to alter a pattern?  TIA

I had to used the photo to put the parts together.  I have the back and front done.  Now I just need to put them together.  It doesn't look right but DH said it was good for a first try.

I keep telling my DH I need to quit work so that I will have time to finish all the projects I have started.  Some I gave away to people that would finish and use them because my kids had outgrown them.  Good thing I'm not growing.

Yours looks good.  I'll try to figure out how to add a picture.

It is my round 7 and row 7.  If I look at the picture it looks like 7db per ch space but the instructions have 7db 1db 1hd 1db trb trb per ch space.  That gives it a ruffle look.  I thought I was reading the instructions wrong but P said I was reading it correctly.  If not, it still looks okay and will be a happy little accident.

I did 1 sq last night.  It is tight.  If I read it right I am supposed to ch5 then slip stitch to make a round then I am supposed to put 11 sets of (3dc 1hd 3dc ch1) in it.

Mine round isn't flat like the picture shows.  Is yours?

I asked a lady (P) that has been crocheting for many yrs if she could figure it out.  She said I was doing what the pattern said to do.

I could make it look like the picture but P said as long as I was consistent (not to mention I had already done so many) it shouldn't matter.

I am just playing around (never crochet clothes before) so I used some yarn I already had.  It is blue and white.  I have a blue top that I think would look good under it.

I wanted to make it when I first saw your post but I didnt have the pattern.  It turned out to be in my first issue of Crochet!

I am not experienced but I am trying this one.  So far it hasn't been too bad but I haven't started to put it together yet.

I have the rounds and neck half round done and 5 of the other half rounds.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Too Young for her size on: August 06, 2010 12:47:50 PM
Most of the patterns my DD likes don't go up to the size I need for her.  She is stocky built like her dad but she is still a little girl.  Is there an easier way to up the size other than trial and error?

I had thought about using basic adult patterns in bright colors and maybe adding some crochet bugs or flowers or something.

Thanks, that was what I was thinking.  I bought it from Annie's attic last Friday and skimmed the directions to find out what I needed to buy.  It seemed like the plastic thickness was more than plastic canvas but I'm sure I can make that work out.

I just bought this pattern and it calls for some plastic that is found in the quilting area.  I don't remember the exact name and the pattern is at home.  I didn't see anything like it in Wal-Mart's quilting area (the only place within an hr or 2 drive).  Do you think that a couple layers of plastic canvas would work?

Right now I am working on counting fish for 3 nieces and my son.  It is a pail and 4 fish.  I am making 2 fish of each color (red, yellow, blue and green = 8 per pail) so that they can count, match and learn colors.  If I have time I may make some shapes to throw in there as well.  For the youngest in the family I am making a caterpillar.  I plan to make DD a bun cover for her ballet class.  My sis is into antiques so I am making her a doily for her wash bowl to sit on.  That is about as far ahead as I have thought out.
