What Should I Consider When Buying Children's Clothing Patterns?

When making clothes for your children, there are some things you must consider. The use of patterns is quite straightforward, yet here are some factors you must always take into consideration before the start of any project.

Size is important when you are making children's clothing. That being said, most patterns for children's clothing today either come in one size or multi-size, so one should always check out the details on the size before making their purchase.

Before picking up a children's clothing pattern from Spotlight, it is certainly useful to have the child's measurements on hand. If grow spurts are a concern, you can still use the measurements, but ensure you create the clothing with a stretchable fabric.

Deciding on a pattern also means you have to think about the type of clothes you want to make. Are you looking to make something your child can wear every day? Or are you making something that should only be worn for a special occasion. Naturally, the answers to these questions will determine which of our patterns you will choose.

What Should I Consider Before Purchasing Clothes Making Supplies?

One of the most important decisions you have to make before starting on your pattern is choosing the fabric or material. There are many different types to choose from but taking the comfort of the child into consideration should always be a priority. When you look at your sewing pattern, it is likely it will contain some fabric recommendations. It is always recommended to follow the guidelines in the pattern, as your choice of fabric can heavily influence the final result.

Of course, getting the recommended fabric from a pattern is not always possible - this can be due to the fact the fabric in question no longer exists, is extremely expensive, or is no longer being manufactured. If this is the case, you can choose a different fabric to finish your pattern. However, it is advised to choose a fabric with similar characteristics as the recommended fabric. Not quite sure which fabric to choose as an alternative? When browsing through the available fabrics at Spotlight, always look for the most versatile and breathable options for children's clothing. The fabric you choose should also be of a similar weight of the recommended fabric - this ensures the structure of your clothing is maintained.

Before starting your project, be sure to check if your children's clothing will require fasteners of any kind. The pattern will recommend fastening systems, much like the fabric recommendations you can find in there. If you are just starting out with sewing patterns, it is certainly advised to stick with the recommended fastener, especially when you consider changing fasteners is a job for a more experienced crafter. When choosing fastening systems, you also need to look at the age of the child in question. For young children, it is best to avoid fasteners such as buttons, as they are easy to swallow. However, if a child is old enough, there are no issues with using buttons.

Finally, before you create your clothing masterpiece, be sure to ask your child's input. While you have may brilliant ideas about what looks fashionable, your child must like the clothing as well. So, why not let your child choose his or her favourite pattern before you get started.
