    1. Great pattern  star rating

      My 5 year old chose this pattern for his swim trunks this summer and he loves them. This pattern is clearly written, easy for beginners and such a fast sew! I had a basic pair finished in under an hour.

    2. Awesome Pattern!  star rating

      I love the Monaco Swim Trunks. The euro style trunks are super trendy right now, and I've sewn a few pairs for both of my boys. They love them and my 4 year old even begs to wear them to bed.. :) The fit is great and they sew up pretty quickly! I've done both the plain & the side stripe and they both came out perfect!

    3. Easy, nice pattern with super fit  star rating

      I purchased, printed and sewed up one pair of swim trunks for my 4 years old, all together in 2,5 hours.
      It was a super fast project. It is a fun design with the side stripe option which I made.
      The fit was perfect. My son was very happy with his new trunks. Wore them for his swim class the next morning.

    4. Easy and very cute  star rating

      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!

      Exactly what I was looking for in euro swim trunks! Great pattern, great size chart, & a fantastic result! easy sew with top quality results

    9. Versatile!  star rating

      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!

    10. Great for girls too!  star rating

      Posted by Amanda Gayle on 24th May 2014

      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.

    12. Sew Much Fun!!!  star rating

      Posted by Daisy on 22nd May 2014

      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!!!!

    14. Not just for swimming  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 21st May 2014

      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?
