Hi all, I want to make little sundresses with matching knickers for my baby niece and toddler goddaughter. I bought a pattern on eBay that doesn't look toooooo complicated but I can't see anywhere on it telling me how much fabric I would need for each size-wher on the pattern would it lightly to be?

There is usually a grid with measurements (chest, waist) etc against sizing. Once you work out what size you need, then there should be a separate grid that advises how much fabric you need for that size and depending on the width of the fabric (usually 45 inch or 60 inch).

If it's paper pattern, this info will be on the back of the pattern envelope. If it's a PDF pattern, it's usually on the first couple of pages.

Thank you so much I can see it now! Wish me luck I haven't made any clothes for about 23 years lol!
