I made the Cape Cod dress for my daughter. It is so cute and preppy looking! I love that it is modest and girly. Amy's instructions are very clear, and her photos are helpful. I have grown to love everything Peek-a-boo. They have become my go-to.

This shirt was perfect for my boys. They were fairly easy to construct, and they are fun to modify with/without sleeve tabs, 0/1/2 pockets, number of buttons on the placket, fabric choices. Size-wise they were perfect. The biggest size (12) the head hole was a bit bigger than I would have liked, so on repeat I cut it smaller. It's probably an artifact of sizing up patterns because the head proportion for younger kids is a lot bigger than for older kids. My 6 year old fit his perfectly.

Made a 3T for my 24m old and head opening barely fits. I asked on FB and others had this issue too. I've been told to increase button placket one size, so take that suggestion and apply it if you buy this pattern. Otherwise, it's a nice and cute shirt. There are various ways to make button plackets & I would say this was my least favorite. Bc of the technique, you end up pulling the opening for the placket, cause fabric to tear. Next time, I will probably use a technique from a different pattern company. I like the shirt, but it does have some construction problems.

This shirt was a breeze to make. I made a boy's size 3T. Great to have a boy's shirt pattern, that you can use the wonderful wovens for boys with, that isn't as formal as a button down. Haven't sewn kid's clothes for awhile, so I proceeded with caution. However the directions were so easy, pretty soon I was saying, ' I must be doing something wrong.' No, it's really that easy! Love this pattern.

I love the look of this pattern, and loved seeing all the different versions that people had made - got to admit my first one was a a bit rough looking as I struggled with the placket/collar. I think most of that was down to me being too keen - and rushing the sew rather than sitting back and reading the instructions properly.

This pattern was pretty easy to follow, I only have made the shirt right now. I'm only having issues figuring out the front button placket. I have made two so far, and can easily make a few more within the day. Perfect for a peek a boo pattern day.
