Some retailers provide global platforms for customised women's and men's clothing; however, the fit size of children’s clothing remains a concern. This research attempted to find sustainable solutions to design problems affecting non-fit children's clothing based on an awareness of the need to reduce post-consumer waste. EcoChildClo is a clothing design mobile application that will help to quickly and easily create designs for children aged one to 12 years old. The EcoChildClo mobile application was developed using MIT App Inventor. This research reported the six phases of the Multimedia Development Life Cycle: concept, design, obtaining content material, assembly, testing, and distribution. The mobile multimedia was built using the JavaScript ES2015 programming language as the authoring tool during the assembly phase. This application can show previews of clothing samples, flat sketches, and made-to-measure flat patterns. Comparative analysis between various apps currently available on the market and the developed application determined that EcoChildClo is properly-suited and better equipped for making the basic blocks of custom children’s clothing. Anybody using this application would be able to customise children’s clothing according to an individual’s height, body measurement, and body shape. Moreover, improved customisation of children’s design and fitted garments would reduce the amount of children's clothing going to household waste.
