Children's Ridgeway Top - Size Chart and Materials List

Size & Measurements Chart

1) Measure the chest and the height.

2) Choose the size by height, and then use the blend guidelines to blend sizes for the child's chest measurements if necessary. 


Finished Garment Measurements

Sometimes it is handy to know how much "ease" there is in a pattern if trying to decide between sizes. 
The following chart details the measurements of the finished garment. 


Suggested Fabrics

This pattern requires lightweight, stable woven fabrics such as lightweight linen, cotton shirting, poplin, or chambray. 

Fabrics NOT suitable: stretch wovens, knits or woven fabrics with a textured or open weave (such as muslin or double gauze) will be very hard to handle when it comes to sewing the front overlap detail, and are not recommended. 

Other Supplies & Notions

  • Spool of coordinating thread
  • Small piece of lightweight interfacing to stabilise the facing and collar - knit or woven are the preferred choices, but non-woven would be OK. 
  • 2 small buttons or 2 sets of snaps if adding the optional sleeve tabs. Though you can use any size you desire, a 1/2"-5/8" (1.3-1.5cm) button will necely fit the 1" (2.5cm) button tab. 

Fabric Requirement Chart

You may need more if matching plaids/checks or if you have a directional fabric.
