Measurement Chart Template

Nothing beats trying clothes onto the recipient during the sewing process. However, this is not always possible. They might not be around or they simply might not want to co-operate. I've designed a template so you can record the measurements of the children you sew for, as a handy reference.

These are the measurements I like to have on hand. There's room to add more if you'd like.

Print a couple; one for home and one to pop in your bag when off to buy sewing supplies.

The free Measurement Chart template is available for download now and is a two page document - includes printables for boy, girl or both together. Don't print from your browser. Click the Download button as per the image below. If you have any problems with the download, let me know.

The template is sized for A4 paper (8" x 11"). To make smaller or larger, change the scale when you print.

Prior to designing this template, I was forever losing the bits of paper where I scribbled the kids' measurements. Not any more.

I'd love you to share this post on Social Media :-)

  1. That's so cute and handy. I think they'd be cute to save too...remember how little they were and see how much they've grown!

  2. I know you designed for Real Live Kids, but I sew for American Girl dolls, Bitty Baby, Vermont Teddy, and several others... I can never remember which measurement goes with which doll/stuffy -- these will be perfect! Thank you!!

  4. This is a great idea, Pam! I used to keep my families measurements on index cards in a recipe box, and also kept track of what I made, the pattern number and size and a clip of the fabric and any changes I made, also what I made for Christmas, birthdays, etc....gee I was so organized in those days!!! LOL!

  5. Grandmas and aunties and neighbours who sew for kids, should send this form to the moms of their little recipients, and ask them to update it about every 6 months - that way the gifters will always have up-to-date sizing information! (Sorry if this comes through twice - I typed it then it disappeared into the ether :D)

  9. A big THANK YOU for this chart. Could n't have come at a better time. But have to redo the measurements every month as my daughter seems to have caught a growth spurt :)
