Need summer pattern for petite 7-year-old
 
Hello ladies & gentlemen --

I have been looking for a cute pattern for my daughter. I would like something she could wear in the summer -- perhaps a tank or T?? I saw a cute tank in Amy's free pattern section, but it's really too "babyish," according to my 7-going-on-20 daughter. ;)

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you! Thank you! :notworthy:

How about this T-Shirt?

Well, I had thought of that one, but it's an adult T, and I don't know how to size it down!! :crying: My very grown up 7-year-old is also very petite and fits into a size 6X.

Perhaps I'll knit that for myself. :lol:

Hmmmm....this is such a cute tank, though you would have to resize it....

Oh, that is cute! OK ...I think I'm going to have to take some time and figure out how to re-size patterns. :doh:

Ooo ... those are some cute ones, too. I'm thinking I'd buy the yarn somewhere else, though! $45 for a kid's t-shirt??? :rollseyes:

Oh yeah, don't be afraid to substitute! There are all sorts of cheap acrylics that don't feel like brillo pads...caron simply soft, lion microspun...go cheap and washable! Just make up a swatch, and use your gauge to determine the pattern. Do you have Stitch N Bitch Nation? There are really easy to follow instructions in there for resizing a pattern.

Oh and about the cute tank top that Julie posted--is it that it's such a cute tank or such a damned cute little girl?!?
