Peek A Boo Castaway Cargo Review

Peek A Boo Pattern Review

Another lovely pattern review

Castaway Cargo Shorts

Pattern Description: 
Pattern includes front pockets, welt pockets in back, cargo pockets on the sides, a faux fly, an extra comfy knit, elasticized waistband with optional drawstring and accent top stitching throughout.

Pattern Sizing:
3m to 12 yrs

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy. Peek a boo instructions are very clear with great pictures to help you on your way if you need them.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love all the pockets! My LO kept gushing on how many pockets he had.

Fabric Used:
Easy wash and wear from Joann's, both the print and solid were from the same material.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No changes. I opted to make the shorts and omitted the drawstring at the waist. 

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I love this pattern and the fact that it offers all sizes in one pattern...I'll definitely be making these again.

They were a easy sew and I got them done in one day. 

Here is a shot of the slash side pockets and the cargo pocket. 
I decided to go with an orangish button from the ol' button stash.

AND How fabulous are these little welt pockets??

((Also the open button down top he is wearing is a momma-made item too. Blogged about HERE. ))
