Here's my situation: As I am just resizing my Smootchie Specials hipster pants pattern, I am trying to figure out if Smootch's dimensions are fairly standard among the tall and thin children set, or if my little darling is an oddball. If anyone is inclined, could you pass along the waist, hip and out seam (from hip bone to ankle bone, down the side of the leg) measurements of your t & l s? Either comment here or send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will enter all of the responses into a draw and send along a free copy of the Smootchie Don't-Call-Me-Skinny Specials when it is finished.
Thank you :)
One more thing, here is a couple pictures for Miss Amy, who commented the other day that her boy is a fabric sitter onner, when trying to cut out patterns.
This may seem familiar:
I've started using his stubborn defiance to help me out, by using his bulk as a pattern weight. Since he refuses to move once he gets down on top of the pattern, I can just steady the pattern piece under him, gently adjust his bulk as needed, and cut the piece out underneath him. Another reason to use sturdy paper for patterns instead of flimsy tissue paper.
