    Sizes: Children's sizes 2 - 14

    File types: A4/Letter size PDF (for home printers), A0 size PDF (for printshops) and a projector file too.

    Difficulty: Beginner

    All the patterns in the Zero Waste Collection are cut from a single rectangular piece (or pieces if there is a lining) of fabric with no waste. This leaves you with only usable rectangular remnants the size of which depends the size of the pattern and the width of the original fabric.

    We know that this type of pattern cutting is not a 'fix all' for waste in the sewing world, but it is our step in the right direction and we really hope you enjoy the patterns as much as we do.

    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.

    Fabrics: Light to medium weight woven fabric e.g. quilting cotton, poly cottons, linen, light weight denim, stretch woven fabrics, peach skin etc.
    Stable knit fabrics with 25% stretch or less in the crosswise direction e.g. light to medium weight jersey or interlock fabrics.

    Note: This pattern is not suitable for directional fabrics.
