Folkwear has a surprising number of children's patterns. Some are perfect for making a cute dress or nightgown, some are perfect for dress up or costume, and some are used for traditional dress or ceremony. Many of our children's patterns have an adult counterpart, such as 218 Child's Frontier Shirt and 212 Five Frontier Shirts, or 213 Child's Prairie Dress and 201 Prairie Dress, and 110 Little Kittel and 148 Black Forest Smock, etc.. Some occur in the same pattern - 141 Korean Han Bok and 120 Navajo Blouse and Skirt. These two, in particular, are often made for special events and traditional ceremony by people of the cultures. But there is also the 221 English Smock (so very cute) that includes a children's pattern. And, then the very popular 154 Child's Scottish Kilt and Jacket (to go with 152 Scottish Kilts).
I want to highlight a few of these great patterns that I made because they are often overlooked. They are mostly fairly easy and quick garments to sew They also can be made with fun and cute fabrics and usually don't take a lot of fabric to make anyway.
Sewing for special children in your life is rewarding and fun.
