    I’m sewing for out-of-town granddaughters. I am making size 5 and size 10 in the top. These tops will go in the mail. Does anyone have any measurements for the length of elastic for these two sizes?

    I can’t say for the size 10, but my daughter is 5, quite slim, and I cut the elastics to 4 inches for her. There was plenty of room to slip on the top and I could have made them slightly shorter without a problem.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you icicle. That will be a big help. The older girl has a square necked top that I can get her mom to measure, so that will help.

    I finished the first of the tops. A picture is on my blog at
