While there are plenty of sewing patterns out there for kids, and plenty of sewing patterns to be had for adults, there’s a group of kids in between – the tweens – that don’t fit either category. Just like ready-to-wear, there are few sewing patterns for this group of kids. My child is in that place, and it seems like all the cute kids’ patterns go up to only a size 8, maybe a 10 if we’re lucky. But adult styles and adult shaping don’t fit her kid body.
Enter Sew Cool for the Tween Scene, a new blog focusing on sewing for our tweens. I saw a post over at Little Kids Grow featuring this new blog, and I clicked over there immediately. I am so excited!!! To launch their new blog, they’ve got a series of guest posts from some well known bloggers who also sew for tweeny types. They’ve also got a post featuring some patterns from “big 4″ and indie designers that have styles suited for tweens.
