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.
Rains Flutter Top from EYMM, size Newborn-18 years
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
*this version is sewn by Karly at Paisley Roots
Chosen by Bella, age 9
“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
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
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
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
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
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!
