Thanks. I have a skinny tall boy and a skinny, tiny daughter....the clothes for DD still come from infants/toddlers section of the pattern books (she's almost 22 months and is just now wearing 18m clothes, but I still have to take in the waist!!). I'm not so much worried with width as they both prefer elastic right now, the length just made me laugh...before DS tried them on, he held them up - to get the bottoms of the legs just touching the floor, the waist was at his shoulders!!!
Those commercial patterns are designed for baby elephants. Always have been. You will need either to do some major pattern alteration (I remember making my DD some things in size 6 width and size 10 length) or buy some children's size pattern drafting software. Length is easier to adjust than width.

Olwyn Mary is right, they are not meant for skinny short kids, I always have to adjust the pattern for DD, who is going into grade 1!
I was especially amused by the comment about baby elephants!
