I want to make my 19 month old some light spring/summer dresses.  I'm having trouble understanding sizes on the patterns as they don't say "View A: 18-24 months" or some other such easy language.  Can anyone offer some advice on how to pick the right pattern size for itty bitties?

Ok, I feel stupid, I just realized that most patterns have measurements to correspond to sizes, duh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you tell that it has been awhile since I picked up a pattern?  Embarrassed

as a warning... they have the measurements... which is what I always go by & if they are patterns with inches... then their is a good chance they will come out too big!  I always suggest tracing instead of cutting the original & don't use your favorite fabric for the first one unless you can handle the chance that it may not be worn for a while.  Goodluck!

the sizing on simplicity so easy patterns seems very messed up... either that or my girlie is an odd shape. she's tall and fairly slim but with a large butt and a belly overhang.
the waists on the patterns are too big, the butt is too small so I've taken to just using her "comfy" jeans as a trouser pattern and guessing anything else.

I have noticed that the arm holes are always either too big or too small, or maybe its my sewing... hmm....
