The range is NB to 12 years old. Even better, right? It's so perfect for the summer, and if you layer it, it will be great for cooler temps, too. Warning: lots of pictures ahead.
My tester version was the shorts view for my 4-year-old:
I made the size 2T based on her chest measurements (don't worry; Ajaire goes into how to choose the right sizing for your child in the instructions!). It was a tad bit tight on her; she's not super slim -- and also I'm not used to seeing fitted clothes on my girls because of my penchant to make things a size too big. But hey, do you want to see my seam matching? Is that what it's called? I think I did all right, considering I never used to think about doing that before I started testing.
|Never did I think I would be posting a "crotch shot." The things you do when you're sewing. Ha ha ha!|
|This is the size 3T bodice and 4T shorts. |
I altered them by making them into longer bubble shorts.
I couldn't just stop with the shorts, though. As soon as Ajaire told us there would be a skirt version, I was all over that!
|This version is what I consider "midi-length". Or is that tea length?|
|This is the maxi version. It's so pretty, but I didn't get great pictures since my daughter was running around in it all afternoon (which shows you that it's active toddler-approved!).|
You can get this awesome pattern on UpCraft Club at the moment, and also on Craftsy, where Ajaire has a great free pattern for the newborn size tank. She also has an Etsy shop (here).
