Great value pattern!
You will get 4 separate patterns : 2 top styles with various options plus bloomers, shorts & long pants.
This adorable summer 2 piece set for babies and toddlers can be made with a ruffle around the hem or as a plain top with an over-edge bias binding or other trim to finish the hem edge. To complete the set there is a choice of three pant styles: bloomers, shorts and long pants.The top buttons at the back to make it easier to get on and off small children and the pants are all pull-on with elastic waist bands. The neckline and armholes have an over-edge binding trim which can be made using the pattern and instructions included or to save time ready-made binding can be used. There is an additional pattern option to have a facing and straps instead of binding on the neck and armholes, this can be used with both versions of the top.
Sizes: 000, 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 to fit children 3 months to 6 years. Always check the size chart first to choose the size closest to your child’s body measurements.
Experience: Advanced beginner/ intermediate. The main construction is simple but the over-edge binding requires careful attention to detail and accuracy. If you have not tried this before it is best to do some practice before attempting the top. Follow the tutorial closely for best results.
Fabric: light weight cottons e.g. homespun, poplin, lawn, seersucker are most suitable. Minimal or 2-way stretch knit fabric can also be used. Do not use 4-way, very stretchy knits/jersey for this pattern.
