A Toddler Boy's Wardrobe
Yardage to Buy
detail of toddler boy from The Pitt Family of Encombe, 1758 and 1761 by William Hoare
For each robe you need a piece 54" long by 28" wide after shrinkage. So 7/8 yd of 54" fabric should do it. You also need about 3/4 yd of 54" white linen (after shrinking) for the shift. For a petticoat, you need a piece 56" x 18 ½" plus a remnant to make a wide waistband. You might be able to get away with a 54" wide fabric, making the petticoat hem 54"around instead of 56". You'll need for the sash a piece of silk (taffeta, faille or the like), 13" wide x 81" long . This can be a remnant or pieced from 3/4 yard of purchased silk.
