This is a multi-sized pattern in children's sizes 2 - 14.  A link to the size charts including all measurements is included just below the product title above.


This pattern is designed for knit fabrics with 25 - 75% stretch in the crosswise direction. These include (but are not limited to): light to medium weight jersey or interlock fabrics with or without lycra or spandex. 

If using the raw rolled hem option, ensure that you select a jersey fabric as other types of fabric will not roll when stretched to create the hem.
