Leggings pattern testers - 80cm-92cm tall

Post by Darny » Wed Mar 23, 2011 1:11 pm

Wanting several testers with babies in cloth nappies between the heights of 80cm and 92cm to test a leggings/ tights pattern - especially looking for over 80cm as I have had several offers that size already. If you'd like to try the pattern please PM me your email address.
Suitable for two way stretch fabrics only - such as cotton lycra.

Testers need to be able to
* sew up garment and test sizing with a week of receiving the pattern
* sew a simple pair of one piece pants without instructions (inside leg seams, crotch seam, hem and elastic casing)
* provide clear feedback as to the sizing and fit - would like the garment tried over bulky and slim fit cloth nappies if possible - and an indication of the age, weight and height of the child tried on.

To test the pattern you will need
*an overlocker or sewing machine which will sew a stretch stitch
*be able to open a PDF and print it

thanks!

Edited to add - there is no guarantee these will fit over cloth nappies - I'm working from a new set of measurements which is why I need testers to figure out the accuracy and ease for cloth nappy wearers.

I would be happy to test it for you, but not sure if I have any 2 way stretch fabric. Will it work with a standard one way stretch knit fabric?

I honestly don't know, and would be keen to find out - would be doing lots of sewing up and testing myself but sill waiting to get my overlocker fixed
PM me your email if you'd like to give it a go

80cm size (I need to tighten the elastic a bit, then it might sit a bit higher up the back of the nappy).
Nappy has 1x hemp flat and 1x microfibre insert.

She's 80cm, about 10.5-11kgs.
Fabric is a one-way stretch cotton knit.

So you used the 92cm pattern? (and they are still a bit long!)
can you possibly get me inside leg measurements - over nappy, middle crotch to ankle bone, and outside leg, from comfortably over the top of the nappy to ankle bone. Plus the finished length inside leg and outside leg of the pants too please
Hows the fit at the back, does it stay over the top of the nappy ok?

Angel, do you want to try the 72cm pattern? They seem very generously sized :roll:

Yip I will try the 72cm and compare the two. I would be happy to just use the 80cm size and shorten the legs if I were to buy the pattern.
