Buy the Baby/Child/Teen Teddy Sweater, Dress and Playsuit sewing pattern from WISJ Designs. Teddy is a cosy, wide sweater or dress with a curve on the chest and back. It’s an oversized style with cuffed sleeves and a bottom hem band. There is also a dress option with an elastic waist. In the three smallest sizes, there’s a playsuit option too.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics: This is a pattern for stretch fabrics. Sweater fabric, French terry and knit fabric are just fine. The pattern works best when you finish the cuffs, neckband and bottom hem band with ribbing. If you use the same fabric as the sweater/dress/playsuit itself, make sure to cut your cuffs/neckband/bottom hem band a bit longer.

Fabric requirements: 

140 cm wide fabric: Sweater: 50 – 120 cm / Sweater dress: 80 – 150 cm / Dress with elastic waist: 80 – 170 cm / Playsuit: 80 – 90 cm // Note: For sizes 12 – 14 years you need a fabric width of 140 cm if you want to cut the top pattern piece in one piece, as it’s almost 140 cm wide.

60 cm wide ribbing: Sweater: 25 – 30 cm / Sweater dress: 25 – 30 cm / Dress with elastic waist: 15 – 25 cm / Playsuit: 15 cm.

Sizing: 9 months – 14 years (playsuit is 9 months – 2 years only). Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.

Notions: Dress with elastic waist: Elastic, 0.5 cm – 1 cm wide // Playsuit: Elastic, 0.5 cm – 1 cm wide; fusible interfacing, two pieces of 3 cm x 10 cm.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; A4 print-at-home pattern (25 pages); A0 copy shop pattern (1 sheet with overlapped pieces or 2 sheets with separate pieces). The print-at-home pattern has layers, so you can print just the size(s) you need.
