hi i would like to start an etsy shop selling cloth diapers, bibs, and childrens clothes (after i get a cheap serger), but i dont know where to start in terms of measurements. where can i find measurments that i can use? i dont have kids yet and i dont know anyone with kids but i LOVE them and i would absolutely love making stuff for them to sell on etsy. should i just buy cheap clothes of different sizes at the goodwill and make patterns according to them? what about for diapers? please help! thanx!

I would checkout diaperswappers.com - seems like they will ave the answers you need.  You can always look at the shops on Hyena Cart ans see what measurements people are using as well.

For making cloth diapers I suggest looking into becoming licensed by a pattern holder. Trimsies, Darling Diapers Unlimited, Little Comet Tails, Chloe Toes, Fattycakes, Artistry Creates and other popular cloth diaper patterns have various licensing where you submit a sample of your work and if approved pay a fee (amount of fee varies depending on the pattern) and you can sell diapers made from that pattern. I suggest that because a lot of cloth diapering moms won't buy a diaper they've never heard of before... you want to know it will work, that it's absorbent, that it won't leak, that it's a good fit and dependable. So by getting that licensing, you've already got a good reputation behind the diaper pattern to help you. I'm just suggesting this because drafting a cloth diaper pattern is a lot of work, and if you don't have a baby to test the diaper on you won't be able to continually tweak it until it's just right, ya know?

As for clothing, I'm not really sure.

Hope this helps.

Thanx guys, that does help!
grniys- thanx, I actually didnt know that but it does make sense, especially if I dont have any test-babies lol. Depending on the fee, I might do that.  Undecided
