This is an estimate of how much fabric you’ll need, based on 160 cm (63”) wide fabric that has not been pre-washed.
Elastic, 5 mm (1/8-1/4”) wide. For long sleeves only. Length: Sizes 74-86: 2x8 cm (2x3”) Sizes 92-116: 2x10 cm (2x4”) Sizes 122-146: 2x12 cm (2x5”)
Sewing machine with stretch needle. A serger can also be used for most of the steps, but a sewing machine is just as fine.
Measure the child and choose a size based on the child’s length. You can also have a look at the chest width columns if you’d like an idea of how Alice will look on your child. Alice has a loose fit, with 7-11 cm ease. If you want to size up to make the garment fit the child longer, I recommend that you only increase length, not width.
Alice was designed for knit fabrics with at least 30% stretch. If your fabric has a lot more stretch, closer to 80%, you may want to consider to size down on width.
