Fit and Ease of the Awhi Coat:

The sleeves have been designed to roll up and a sleeve adjustment guide has been included on the pattern piece for a custom length sleeve.
When you are choosing what size to create, measure around the chest (around the body just under the underarms). Use the chest measurement to determine what size your child is.
This pattern has been created using Standard American Measurements and might seem different to what you usually buy in stores. Therefore, use the size the chart says you are to fit the chest, and if required, lengthen or shorten the pattern as needed. More detailed size and finished measurement charts are included within the pattern.
Children’s sizes; 1-10 (including newly added size 18m)
