But we do not cut it on a flat canvas, but on an already used one, so it’s more convenient to work with a paper pattern.


Width below = waist girth + 2 cm. Height and width of the upper part do at will, measuring on the child from the waist line up. Side seam to armhole = about 5 cm. This is for a child about 110 cm tall. We draw an arm line with an arc, smoothly connecting the side seam to the top of the product.
