Peek A Boo Pattern Review
Another lovely pattern review

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.
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. ))
