The need for children?s formal wear is growing as parents take their children into formal occasions more often than before. Yet there are some problems to be solved in order to generalize about children?s formal wear such as high price and the development of patterns for better fit and design.Mothers of boys were surveyed to find out the needs, complaints, and required improvements of boy?s formal wear. Pattern designers of children?s formal wear brands were interviewed to determine the size specifications, pattern drafting methods and design features of each brand. Based on these results, several pattern drafting methods were selected. Jackets and pants for 9-year-olds were made by each pattern drafting method using the KS standard size. They were compared through wearing test to improve the fit. As a result, pattern drafting methods for children?s tailored suits and two formal jackets were suggested.
