My boys are both tall and skinny (when measuring their waists for pattern size they both had 19 inch waists!), so it makes it very hard to buy clothes for them. This pattern was simple and easy to understand and both swimsuits turned out adorable!

The pattern was easy to male with cleat instructions. Fit just right too!

The patterns represent great value - I was able to print and cut 4 different sizes for the price of one pattern. The instructions are clear and the togs are a nice snug fit. I've been inspired to purchase more Peekaboo patterns.

These shorts are perfect when paired with the Hang Ten Rash Guard. Hip, adorable and they fit perfectly over cloth swim diapers!

While I love these on my new little guy, I also sewed up a couple pairs for my daughter for under skirts. She refuses to wear pants, and is starting school, so these will help keep her unmentionables unseen!

I made these as swim shorts to go with a rtw top that the bottoms were too big for... Also made a pair for soccer and volleyball practice and to wear under skirts.

This is another example of a well written pattern. Very easy to follow and you end up with a great finished product. Your options are endless with the color-blocking and even with a lining they are a quick sew.

I made a bunch (10) of these cute little shorts in the plain pattern for girls to wear under their twirly skirts. I used 4 way stretch knit and sewed these up in an evening. I will be sewing many more!!!!

A very versatile pattern! My kids prefer to wear these around the house because they are so comfy. Make them out of knit fabric and you have great every day play shorts. They are great for girls for under skirts/dresses as well. I love that these take very little fabric and that they sew fast. Practical yet cute, and fun at the same time. What more could you want?
