Ladies who have rediscovered sewing in order to provide stylish and well-fitting clothes for their children. As our kids are growing up, they are not yet physically ready or mature enough for adult clothes, and thus adult patterns. So we are in search of fun, functional, and fashionable pre-teen patterns to share with you. Our primary goal is to assist in making sewing for tweens a fun experience for the sewer and the model!
And if you read their advise, you will see common themes. We have consolidated those themes and tips into the top ten tips.
Sewing for a tween is different than sewing for a toddler. They have a much more defined and personal sense of style. Importantly, they have an ever changing body. Therefore, when you sew for a tween you must be careful to get the fit right ... both for their body and their personality. You might also want to take this into consideration when thinking about fabric. It seems like a favorite is using knit, because it 'grows' with them a little more than wovens and it's a little more allowing for things like curves that come with those changing bodies.
So please stay with us and join the conversation on how we can sew for our tweens in this exciting and changing time.
