Sailor Shorts and Tee Peek-a-Boo Summer Tour

I am so glad to be a part of the Pattern Tour for Peek-a-Boo!

I am a huge fan of Amy's patterns!  She always has great pictures to go along with the step-by-step instructions and is very helpful if you get stuck and need an answer!

Here are the two patterns I completed and a little review on each (shop links are affiliate links):

I was so excited to get these during a Thrifty Thursday sale!  All patterns are only $4 so make sure you go TODAY to get your copy of the Madison Dress!  Click here!

The sailor shorts were not as easy to construct as a simple elastic waist short but I think all the details are worth the extra work that went into them!!!
There's an option to make working button holes on the front but I decided to just sew the vintage sailor buttons I had to the front.  Also, the leg cuff was a completely new technique for me!!!  At first I thought I was following the directions wrong but everything came out so cute!!!

The T-shirt!!!
Ok, why do I even buy t-shirt blanks?  Seriously, this is SOOOOO easy to sew!  I am going to feature the shirt in a post for House of Estrela next month since I refashioned an old t-shirt to make this one!

If you want to start working with knits this is the pattern for you!  Click here!

I want to introduce you to my new family member - meet Marisol the Mannequin!  She is modeling the adorable nautical outfit but it's a tad too small for her!  I stretched out the shirt a little too much trying to get it on!  But, I can't wait to showcase some of my new outfits on this dress form!

This model is cuter and the outfit fits like a glove!  

I made the 18 month size for both patterns and it fits my 18 month old so well!
The embroidery on the shirt came from Embroitique - the anchor applique is a little finicky on my machine but I love the font!  The font is called "Arizona."

I've had so many compliments on her outfit when she wears it out and about!  Shorts and t-shirts are the main part of my kids wardrobes in the summer!  I can't wait to make some more!

There is an AMAZING giveaway right now so make sure you enter!!!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  Google Reader is going away next month so if you want to keep up with the projects I have going click the bloglovin' button on the side to follow me!  I have a new pattern in the making and I would love to share it with you!  (Speaking of which, have you downloaded my free bloomer pattern?)

  1. What a cute outfit! I love those adorable studs. Did you need a special tool to install them?

    1. They are buttons so I just sewed them to the shorts!!! (They have the button shank on the back)

  2. Oh my goodness, the cuteness is killing me!

  3. So cute!! There is just something about sailor outfits for little kids that is just so stinkin' adorable :)
