    Has anyone made a size 7 and can tell me how long to cut the elastic? These are for a surprise gift.

    Thanks!

    @miss_sonja if you look at any pattern you should find body waist measurements for size 7. General rule of thumb is to cut the elastic one inch shorter than the waist measurement. Depends a lot on your elastic and your kid…
    For my just turned 7 son who is quite lean I would cut about 22″. I think this is about 1.5″ less than the standard size 7 waist measurement.

    Thanks, Lightning. I’ve always had the child in front of me for the elastic-never referenced those measurements for that purpose so it didn’t occur to me.
