Today, I bring you more blurry photos with direct, middle-of-the-day sunlight! I took these the same day as the ones for my last post, so don't judge. Instead, feast your eyes on this handsome little man in his Day Camp Set by Peekaboo Pattern Shop!
Both the tee and shorts are FREE and come in sizes 2T-5T. I made both in a 2T for Ezra who is 20-19-21, about 34-35" tall and 27-28lbs. He typically wears 18-24mo in Gap/Old Navy clothing and is quickly moving into 2Ts. You know how I like to make my kids' clothes with a little room, so if you're questioning whether to size up if in-between on these, I'd go up. I've found that Amy's patterns are usually very true-to-measurement with little growing room. That's a great thing if you want a trim-fitting, nice-looking garment. The only modification I made was to lower the front neckline of the tee by about 5/8-3/4". As you can see, it's spot-on for him.
The yellow jersey (tee) and twill (shorts) are both from Fabric Depot in Portland. The geometric jersey was something I had left over from another project and came from Wanderlust Fabrics. The ribbing is from my stash. I did some decorative coverstitching on my Janome Coverpro 1000CPX. I regret not taking some close-ups of the stitching, but oh well. Such is life!
I actually made three of these tees in different color/print combinations, and they all look fabulous. I made the shorts in gray, khaki and navy. Perhaps I'll get around to photographing them all at some point, but for now, I'm just trying to get caught up so I can get back in the swing of blogging regularly. :)
SO, if you have a toddler/preschooler, go grab this free pattern! Both the pieces could work for a girl, too, with simple modifications (or exactly as they are, really).
