    Hi just got my patterns in the mail today and can’t wait to try them out! This will be my first time sewing Oliver patterns. I noticed on the after school shirt that a back waist length was not given nor was there a marking on the pattern to make the adjustment. I’m used to using that measurement as a guide for fitting when I use other commercial patterns like Simplicity, McCall, etc. So, where and how should I make the adjustment? My soon to be 8 year old has a 23″ chest and 21 1/2″ waist, slightly smaller than a size 5. When I use other patterns- like Simplicity- I make a size 6 and then adjust the back waist length for 8 year old. She is long waisted so most things are too short and have to be adjusted. Thoughts?

    Thanks for the help,

    Linda

    Add more length then you think you will need, you can always trim!

    Good luck!

    PS Add lots, this is quite a cropped style.

    Thanks Nicole! I’m assuming adding to the bottom would suffice for this pattern, correct?

    That’s all I did 🙂

    You could cut and splice at the middle if you are worried about losing the shape.
