Hi friends! Today I’m excited to be a part of Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop’s summer tour! Amy has an amazing stock of children’s patterns. There’s something for everyone in every season.
Disclosure: I’m an affiliate of Peek-a-boo Patterns. I received these patterns in exchange for my review. All opinions are honest and my own, and this post contains affiliate links.
As I mentioned in this post, my kids are in need of some more summer clothes. So I knew I needed to sew up the Coastal Craze Baggies for my older boys and the Lazy Days Romper for my littlest ones.
Find the Coastal Craze Baggies here.
My five-and-a-half-year-old is super tall and skinny, so I made his with a size four waistband and a size six length. They fit perfectly. I upcycled an old sweatshirt for the shorts and the stripe fabric [which matches his brother’s romper!] is from Girl Charlee.
My three-year-old’s are made from a woven [Michael Miller that I got from Anna awhile ago]. The 3T size was a perfect fit for him. This pattern goes all the way up to size 12, so we’ll be able to use this for a long time!
The romper went together really smoothly. It’s a little bit time consuming, with all the little arm and leg bands, plus the snap facings. But it’s worth it, because it is seriously cute. My son will be two at the end of July, and he fits nicely in the 24 month size. He wears cloth diapers, though, so it’s definitely a little snug. Since that is the largest size, I’ll probably extend the romper a little bit for him next time.
