I really appreciate all the input! I haven’t made many pants that are supposed to “fit”, mainly just elastic waist ones, so they weren’t too bad before! I think I’ll measure up some of the pattern pieces and compare them to his current size and see what looks like it will fit the best!
Thank you so much for your input. So even if his hip size fits into the 2T range, I should still go up to a size 3 or even 4 plus lengthen them? I guess I should just dive in and make them. At least I have 2 younger sons to get some use out of them later on should they not turn out too well. (Although they’re all skinny!!)
My son is a skinny 5 year old. I’m wanting to make the art museum trouser and he has a 19 inch waist and 22 in hip with a height of 40 inches. I’m guessing I should make the 2T size, but where would be the best place to lengthen the pants? Should I cut out the 2T size and just add an extra few inches at the bottom hem?
