Hello everyone! Ive been around PR for a while now, but this is the first time Ive posted on the forums and Im wondering if some of you can help me.

Ive decided to begin drafting childrens patterns, and ordered some slopers form string codes online. (2T - 7 years) Theye've told me they have Wearing ease in them which is a good thing, but now we get to the design ease and my issues start.

How much design ease do I add to a yoke? Or do I not add any at all because its got wearing ease in the yoke bit? (The skirt will be a bubble skirt so will also need to draft a lining and tips on ease in that would be very helpful also)

If making pants/skirt , how do I add ease without making them hang off the child? Is there a trick to this? Do I keep the waist/yoke the same and just alter the leg?

If im making a basic fitted sun dress how much ease should I add to the bodice? I dont want it ridiculously large like the big 4 patterns, but reasonably sized. Semi fitted but not tight I suppose.

When it comes to armcycles and crotch, do I need to add any aditional ease to them? If so how much for standard pants? Unlesss ofcourse im making harem pants where I know I would.

The next issue is I have no children to fit these patterns on, my niece is all grown up at age 11 now, so that rules her out.

If there is any general childrens ease guide someones got Id love a copy!

Sorry for the crazily long post, and thanks for all the help in advance!
