      I am looking for a pattern for knickers, shirt and hat for a
      newsboy. It is a for a sculpture that I am creating. It will be
      placed at the Texas state capitol building in Austin. I want to
      make the clothing as authentic as possible. You can read about
      it at http://www.creativesculpture.com/texaspress.html

      I need a pattern ASAP as finding the knickers children size 12 is
      almost impossible, and I want this to be as authentic as
      possible. Time period 1920's

      thanks in advance,

      Bridgette Mongeon

      PS this site is for all the newspapers that are associated with
      this project. They are my client. I would be happy to put a link on
      this site to your page as well as information on how you helped
      with my search, should you be able to solve this clothing
      dilemma.

      Did you manage to find a pattern or a picture of what you want in any size from that period? If so, it would be easy for many of us on this list, I imagine,

            If you have access to vintage clothing shops, a possibility is to find yourself a nice pair of wool pants and cut them down to size. You can easily make knickers out of any pair of pants by cutting of the leg at the desired length and using the remaining fabric to make the knee band. Just be sure to put a continuous lap placket or a double bias binding in the side seam to allow for an adjustable knee closure.

                What period are you looking for? The sort of "vintage" I was thinking about is SUPER vintage. If you have any shops in the area that specialise in vintage (before 1940's) they might be able to help. Or, I like to look online. A modern size 12 for boys is fairly close to a small men's size back at the turn of the century so you might have some luck with online places.

                  I have checked with the vintage clothing stores and they said the boys wore
                  their clothes out, unlike the girls and women. So boys clothing is very
                  hard to find. As I research the history ( historical boys clothing web
                  site) I find that the boys knickers were for the teenagers and that the boys
                  put them away when they became a man. It was there transition clothes from
                  little boy shorts to mans pants. I have contacted the historian that wrote
                  the article Death of a Newsboy that I have linked to on the web site that I
                  am writing about this project
                  http://www.creativesculpture.com/texaspress.html . If he has more detailed
                  photos I may be able to do this on my own.

                  I did find a pattern for a women's knickers( underpants). Not sure how I
                  would have to modify that to m ake it look like a newsboys.

                  thanks for all of your help and suggestions keep them coming.

                  If you have access to vintage clothing shops, a possibility is to find
                  yourself a nice pair of wool pants and cut them down to size. You can easily
                  make knickers out of any pair of pants by cutting of the leg at the desired
                  length and using the remaining fabric to make the knee band. Just be sure to
                  put a continuous lap placket or a double bias binding in the side seam to
                  allow for an adjustable knee closure.

                    If women's knickers are supposed to be underpants or bloomers, I don't
                    think they would be the same at all as boy's knickers. You had
                    mentioned something about the pockets being different. Could you be
                    more specific? Because other than that, I would think that knickers
                    would look the same as long pants except for their being cut shorter
                    and having a cuff below the knee.

                      I just found 2 books in my library that show pictures of boys' knickers
                      from the 1920s. One is "The Way We Wore" and the other is "Everyday
                      Fashions of the Twenties". Unfortunately, most of the pics show
                      jackets over the knickers so you cant see what the waists look like.
                      The few that do look the same as men's trouser waists, except for one
                      from 1923 which features the drop waist worn by women at the same time.
                      I dont think it would have been too typical however.
