What I really love about this pattern is that it is a quick and easy make. I am sometimes put off making kids clothing as they can take a while to make and then they grow out of them quickly. This patterns ticks my boxes for wearability and is simple to sew. I love the pocket detail and can imagine all sorts being stored in there!
The skirt has plenty of movement and room in it and wouldn’t be restrictive for the wearer while playing. It is also a skirt that could be used for any season depending on the fabric that is used. We used a mid-weight cotton canvas for the skirt which will be hard wearing for anything that the wearer will throw at it. However it could be done in a brightly coloured lawn or gauze for a summer skirt or a drill or light weight denim for winter, making it a great versatile pattern.
The woven Duck Egg Blue Broderie Anglaise Double Gauze top in the pictures above is the Mini Cuff Sleeve Top also by The Assembly Line, which we have also reviewed for you.
The Pink knitted top is the Novice Sweater Junior by Petite Knit.
