Overalls pattern with shorts for the girl

Sewing clothes with your own hands has never lost its relevance for a variety of reasons. Many people prefer to sew in order to have exclusive things, and someone simply can not find a suitable model for their figure. And also sewing can be a hobby or even a way of extra income. It is worth remembering about good money savings when creating, not buying clothes.

Women who sew, often sew a lot of clothes for their children, and especially a wide variety of things for girls. One of the options for beautiful, but practical clothes is jumpsuit. In addition, this element of the wardrobe is quite easy to execute - even the person who does not have much experience can sew it.

DIY overalls pattern

Before you start creating overalls, you need to decide on the desired model. The choice of fabric, threads, accessories and other elements for decoration will depend on this. But all this is not enough - one of the most important parts of the sewing process is a pattern.

Of course, you can try to do without it, however, the result can disappoint with a very high probability. A pattern is a pattern of elements of a future thing, allowing you to sew things that fit the figure.

For different models of the same clothing patterns will vary. You can find the right one in various magazines, books, as well as on specialized sites and forums. But you can also do everything exclusively on your own, with a lot of experience. To create a pattern can not do without taking measurements of the person for whom the thing is sewn.

How to take measurements

To take measurements, you need a soft centimeter tape. The child for whom the item will be sewn should stand straight, with his hands down so that his posture is familiar, there is no tension.

IMPORTANT! It is necessary to take measurements very accurately, since a discrepancy of even 1-2 cm can lead to the fact that the product will be completely unsuitable for the figure. Up to the point that it will be impossible even to try on it.

In order for the measurement data to be correct, it is worth making it repeatedly (at least twice) and over loose clothing. The tape measure does not need to be held too tight or too loose. Taking all measurements begins on the right, and lengths - from the point of the seventh cervical vertebra. Results should be recorded immediately in detail to avoid errors.

IMPORTANT! The height, length and width data are recorded in the amount of the resulting number, and for circles, the result value is divided by 2.

For young children, fewer measurements are required - their body does not yet have pronounced forms. Enough girth values: neck; breast Waist hips. From measures of length: back to waist; shoulder sleeves; on the side, on the side of the leg; foot itself. And also determine the values: the width of the back, the height of the armhole and seat, height. Children under one year of age are measured in the supine position.

For a teenage girl whose figure already has feminine outlines, the number of measurements will increase. Before removing them, it is necessary to outline the waist line, belting the figure strictly horizontally with a belt or tape.

It is necessary to additionally measure the girths not only of the chest, but above and below it.

ATTENTION! In the abbreviations OSH, OG, OT and others, the letter “O”, depending on the source, can be deciphered as “girth” or “circle” - these are equal values.

Building patterns

Now there is an opportunity not only to download the desired pattern from the Internet, but also to pre-calculate its parameters using specialized services. It is enough to enter the data of the measurements made, and then print the result on a printer. For those who for some reason cannot do this, it is necessary to make all the calculations and drawings on their own. In fact, it is not so difficult.

REFERENCE! It is most convenient to carry out a pattern on transparent paper with a pencil. You can use colored ones to indicate and highlight lines.

There is a basic model, it serves as the initial version of various styles due to the variation of the length of the sleeves and trousers, the addition of other elements. Its basis are two patterns: the upper part and the lower. Combining the patterns of the bodice and trousers, you can get the desired model of overalls.

There is another option - one-piece, for him the prototype will be a dress pattern (trapezoid shape or T-shirt), where instead of a hem, pants are designed.

Pattern overalls with shorts for girls from 2 to 5 years

For children, drawing up patterns is carried out not only with taking measurements, but also according to templates based on sizes, in accordance with age. Knowing this fact greatly facilitates sewing overalls - you can not take measurements, but take data according to age.

REFERENCE! The body of children does not have pronounced forms, and one of the main requirements for clothing is comfort and freedom of movement. Therefore, it is advisable to use a one-piece model.

If you choose a ready-made template, then for girls from two to five years it will correspond to sizes of 28 or 30. However, these numbers do not say much to a simple layman and in different sources can have different values ​​from each other. It is more convenient to focus on the value of the growth of the child. For example, you can use as a basis a finished pattern for growth of 104 centimeters. And if necessary, reduce or increase its parameters, according to the actual growth and complexion of the child.

In general, the creation of a pattern of overalls for little girls is not much different from similar ones in adults. For the convenience of the child, it is possible to add various options for fasteners on buttons, buttons, zippers.

Pattern of summer overalls for girls 10-12 years old

For older girls, you can sew more complex and stylish overalls. The formation of patterns for this will be based on modeling a bodice and trousers. It is imperative to take into account the presence of an increase so that clothes do not hamper movement.

IMPORTANT! The increase in fit should be at the top and bottom within the same values.

Start by creating a top template. The model should be delineated taking into account the values ​​of previously taken measurements. If the summer overalls will have sleeves, then they should also be added to the pattern, not forgetting the increase in those places where there will be seams.

After you can begin to develop patterns for trousers. By analogy with the bodice, the values ​​of all dimensions are taken into account in the formation of the template for the bottom.

There are two ways to connect elements. In the first case, they are combined with a gap along the waistline (2-3 centimeters) - the top is obtained with a small overlap. In the second, they lower the height of the seat so that it is comfortable to sit in overalls.

You can create a pattern for a one-piece jumpsuit. In this case, there is no need to calculate separately the data for the upper and lower parts, as well as for their connection. Everything can be placed in one pattern.

After the template for the future product is ready, it is transferred to the fabric, taking into account the indentation at the seams. Next, you can start sewing.

Sewing Stages:

  1. Connect the bodice parts with side seams.
  2. To process a neck and to sew in sleeves (if they are provided).
  3. Collect trousers at the inner and outer seams, overcast the bottom.
  4. Sew the bottom to the top. For the fused model, the front and back parts are simply sewn together, the edges of the product are processed.

And the jumpsuit is ready!
