## DRAFTING BODICE PATTERN FOR CHILDREN

Making the pattern for the child is actually not as complicated as imagined. It is only need an understanding of how to make it. Here I share with you how to create patterns for children. I hope it will be useful for you. ### FRONT

Draw square line, and mark with ABCD as below.
( noted : the information given in this pattern is in centimeter / CM )

A – C = ½ body circumference + 2
B – D = A — C
A – B = center back length + 1 ½
C – D = A—B
A – E= ½ A-C
A – F = 1/6 neck circumference + ½
A – G = (A – F ) + 1
F – G = draw a curve to make front neck line
B – H = A— E
E – L = measure  2 ½ down , usually  2 ½ cm, but you can make 2cm (it doesn't make a big different)
H— K = ½ L – H
Draw a line from  F to  L
F – I = shoulder width , measure from the side of neck to the top of armhole.
B – J = K - H
G – M = ½ G– J
M – N = ½ chest width
Draw a curve  I – N – K

BACK

C – O = 1 ½
C – P = A – F
Draw curve O-P
P - Q = shoulder width
O – S = ½ O – R
S – T = ½ back width
Draw a curve Q —T— K
