I have been doing some back to school sewing for my daughter and saw that I had very few patterns that are her size. She is 9 1/2 and entering the 4th grade this year. So, I took a little road trip to JoAnn Fabrics and looked to see what they had in her size. Let me tell you, it was not a lot. But, in the coming weeks I will share what I found and how they turned out.
In the meantime, I have scoured the internet and these are a few of the most appealing to my tastes (influenced heavily by my daughter). I have also included some boy patterns but they are even more rare.
Without further delay, here are a few that I have found. (links in the caption)
