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!

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.

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

Thanks, Brooke! I had seen this one, and it, too, seems like the wrong size. <sigh> Thanks, though! It's really cute!

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?!?
