Baboosh clothes are designed to grow along, don't be tempted to make the next size up as it will probably be too big! If you're unsure please refer to the sizing table, additionally the hem to shoulder measurements are as follows: 9-12m: 47.5cm // 12-18m: 51cm // 18-24m: 53cm // 2-3y: 56cm // 3-4y: 59.5cm // 4-5y: 63.5cm // 5-6y: 66cm // 6-7y: 69cm: 72cm.
Ideally you would be using an overlocker/serger, however you can make this dress using a standard sewing machine. For top tips sewing jersey fabrics, please take a look at this blog post!
No printer needed and no sticking bits of paper together- this 2-page A0 paper pattern is printed proper paper, not flimsy tissue and it gets even better- the sizes are drawn separately so you can keep them all, no need to trace. Just cut out the pieces you need and get busy sewing. Patterns are posted 1st class on the same or next day of placing your order.
You can also add an optional labelled box which you can use to store all the pattern pieces in, ready for next time. Or how about sending it as a lovely gift to a sewing friend?
-Strip for trims, 10cm length, 1.2m width. (Ribbing gives the best result. Alternatively you could also cut the trims out of the same fabric as the dress, or a different jersey fabric, as long as it has good stretch & recovery!)
-Double sided fusible hem tape (6-9m: 1.3m // 9-12m: 1.4m // 12-18m: 1.5m // 18-24m & 2-3y: 1.6m // 3-4y: 1.7m // 4-5y: 1.8m // 5-6y: 1.9m // 6-7y & 7-8y: 2.0m). No hem tape? No problem! Simply add some to be included with your pattern.
-Twin needle (optional)
