Tween PDF Pattern MasterList : Tweens Choice

Tween PDF Pattern MasterList : Tweens Choice

Welcome to the second tween PDF Pattern Masterlist Roundup! Our first roundup was full of Spring Looks, and today is Tween’s Choice! No rhyme or reason; I just had each kid pick some patterns they liked. I’ll let the kids tell you what they like about each pattern.

Tween sewing pattern roundup- chosen by tweens!

Rains Flutter Top from EYMM, size Newborn-18 years

Rains Flutter Top pattern from EYMM | Tween PDF Pattern MasterList

Chosen by Hailey, 13 years

“I like Rain’s Flutter Top because it would go with jeans and flip-flops. Or shorts. It fits kind of loose and wouldn’t show my bra straps.”

Jolly Roger Raglan Shirt from Patterns For Pirates, size 3 months-14

Jolly Roger Raglan Tee by Patterns For Pirates | Tween PDF Pattern Masterlist

“The Jolly Roger tee is a normal shirt. I like to wear regular stuff but it has to be my style.”

Bailey Tunic from Greenstyle Creations, size 3-12 years

Bailey Tunic from GreenStyle Creations | Tween PDF Pattern Masterlist

Chosen by Julie, age 11

“I picked Baileys Tunic because it’s comfortable just like a regular tank top but more dressed up.”

Taylor’s Tween Pajama Pants from Create Kids Couture, size 7/8-15/16

Taylor's Tween Pajama Pants pattern from CKC | Tween PDF Pattern MasterList

Chosen by Julian, size 12

“Taylor’s Tween Pajama pants are cool cuz that kid is wearing Star Wars. And I’d like some with Legos.” 

Stellars Vest  from Elegance & Elephants, size 12 months-10

Stellar's Vest & Dress pattern from E&E | Tween PDF Pattern Masterlist

Chosen by Christian, age 8

“Stellar’s Vest is like the ones I wear at school, but better. Cuz you could make it in not-itchy fabric. That would be way comfortable in class.”

Design Your Own Zip It Dress from BooDesignsAustrailia, size 5-12

Zip It Dress from BooDesignsAustrailia | Tween PDF Pattern MasterList

Chosen by Bella, age 9

” I like the Zip It Dress and I want one with black with an electric blue zipper. I’d wear it with motorcycle boots.”

Julia’s Sweater from Filles á Maman, size 7-16

Julia's Sweater from Filles á Maman | Tween PDF Pattern Masterlist

Chosen by Isabelle, age 10

“Julia’s Sweater is pretty how it’s longer in back. I’d wear plain ones and colorful ones and flower ones and the pockets can have glitter.”

There you have it! Looks like tweens all want comfort and  style. But they choose garments for different reasons. Some of them want to blend in with the crowd, some want to look one of a kind. Some girls may choose clothing based on how it covers their bodies. And they may choose a look based on the styling or advertising.  If you can determine what the motivation is behind your tween’s style; you’ll sew more successful garments for them.

I’ll update the Masterlist Page as often as possible. I’m hoping it’s a good resource for you. See you next month with new patterns!

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    Loving these posts. How fun to see actually tweens picking out patterns and fabrics and giving their honest opinions. All these tweens are rocking it. What great fashionable models you’ve found. Such style, too!

    And, of course, you are insanely talented…let’s not forget that!

    Good idea to get the kids’ viewpoints as to why they chose the patterns. You are so right as to having more success sewing for tweens if you can work out the motivation behind their likes… which will, of course, change at frequent intervals.
