    cause i want to make a dress for my bff's doughter , and she is almost 6 month old now , i'm thinking that i might add an extra inch in the chest area , like it has to be 17" but i make it 18" so it can be comfortbale to wear , but im fread that its gonna look to big .

    [B]so in making babies dresses should i make it exactly as the sizes writtin in this page ? or should i add extra inches ? [/B]

    I do not think you will have severe problems, there will be more give in putting the dress on and maybe a little give or looseness of the chest but will probably just fit longer.

    Hello elproct, I make baby things all the time and I like to make them just a little bit bigger so the baby can get more wear out of it. If you have not seen the baby it is hard to judge the correct size to make (bigger or smaller).
    Below is a link I use to get an idea of the start for measurements. You can find more charts on the Internet for allsizes from newborns to adult.
    Hope this helps you.

    Thanks, those are the charts I use too. Good luck and have fun. I often ask the mom to do measurements of the child so I shape it just right for them.

    Hello elproct, I am sorry my reply with the chart was meant for Luna411 it was her question. I appreciate your nice reply to me,

    Looks like you and I are on the same page. I only make items for my grandchild so if I am lucky by the time I get to measure her and make the item she has not grown out of it yet. That is why I make mine a little bit bigger.
    Babies grow up so fast.

    Hello luna411,
    I think putting the measurements next to the dress is a good idea but also list the size of the dress you made. For example some babies might be 6 months old but wearing a bigger size because they may be longer or a little bit chubbier or the reverse they may be a small baby.

    Good Luck,

    Luna411, You measure from the back to the waist for a baby. For 6 months it can be 6 1/2 inches. If you want an empire waist dress one that goes just around the chest area then you can guess and use 4" or stop at the underarm area.
