While looking at Plush Cat, my DD fell in love with some stretch denim with burgundy flocked animal print. Looks much better than that description sounds. I ordered enough fabric for a skirt and jean style jacket. I couldn't find a pattern in girls' sizes for the jacket, so decided to try the smallest size on Kwik Sew 2895. Then, she told me she actually wanted a cropped length jacket, roughly at the bottom of her rib cage.
She's 11, about a size 12, and I was already facing shortening the jacket from the adult length. Any opinions on how easily I can alter this to a cropped length? Any suggestions? I see several reviews on that pattern, so am hoping someone with experience with the pattern can help me evaluate it.
Thanks.

Hi,
I have not made that jacket, but you might consider using Jalie pattern which is a downloadable pattern in all sizes (including childrens)
Good luck,
Judy
