Pattern of a jeans sundress for the girl

Children's fashion is more democratic than adult, styles do not change for years. Denim sundress is an ageless classic, so we will analyze in detail how to make a pattern and sew it with your own hands.

Choose a style and fabric for a sundress

First of all, let's decide on the material.

We sew from new jeans fabric or from second-hand jeans.

The second method is more convenient, since a children's sundress will turn out even in the absence of a pattern.

The easiest way is to sew sundresses on the straps, as well as one-piece models.

Advantages of a sundress:

  • Low fabric consumption, respectively - low costs.
  • A variety of options in possible finishes.
  • The ability to combine different materials in one model.
  • A sundress is combined with different blouses, t-shirts and so on.

Advice! A comfortable model of a skirt, complemented by straps from the belt - this is a sundress.

Taking measurements at the girl

When sewing children's clothing requires less measurements than an adult, it is very convenient.

The main indicator is the growth of the child.

  • Growth - we put the child barefoot to a flat vertical surface, make a mark with a pencil perpendicular to the wall. Then with a measuring tape we measure the resulting distance.
  • Chest girth - measure by the protruding points of the chest. Divide the resulting number in two, find out the size of the clothes.
  • Waist circumference - a centimeter tape horizontally along the estimated waist.
  • Hip circumference - measure the protruding hips.
  • Neck circumference (some models are not required) - Around the base of the neck along the jugular cavity.
  • The length of the product is from the seventh cervical vertebra to the required length along the back.

Rules for constructing sundress patterns for a girl

The minimum number of parts is two: a shelf and a back.

Advice! The back pattern is easy to obtain from the front pattern, if you circle the last one, and then deepen the armhole by the desired size - 1-2 cm, and the neck - 5-10 cm.

In the base pattern (in the simplest version, take the most suitable t-shirt for the child, circle the contours .) Make the following changes:

  1. We deepen the armholes (3-5 cm.).
  2. Deepen the neck.
  3. Extend the pattern to the desired model length.
  4. We mark the tucks, if the model is fitted, in this case, we make a small allowance at the waist.

Advice! When cutting, make the lower seam allowance longer (5-8 cm.) Than usual. Subsequently, it can be torn off, thus lengthening the sundress.


On jeans sundresses traditionally place a lot of pockets:

  • The easiest option is patch pockets . Perfectly fit pockets with former small jeans.
  • “Framed” pockets can be done only by experienced craftswomen, but they are more easily made from denim.
  • Welt pockets with flap . The pocket turning is replaced by a cut-out valve that closes the entrance to the pocket, in addition, serving as a decorative element.
  • Pockets with leaflet . A leaflet can be made from a trouser belt or straps.

Important! Inside pockets, invisible from the outside, only oval-shaped pockets are sewn.
