    This is another lovely pattern! It is so sweet, fun and playful. Fit is great and my dd loves it!! My favourite is the attached shorts option. Another very well done pattern by love notions!!!

  2. Jaslyn (verified owner)

    Love the options that came with this pattern. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. I especially love the skirt option!! Will be making lots of this pattern in future!

  3. Linda

    This pattern is an excellent value for all that you receive. The peekaboo hole in the back is so cute. I made the shorts and shirt for my daughter and she wore them often. So cute and versatile. You can’t go wrong with this collection!

  4. Lea (verified owner)

    I’ve made the shirt for my daughter a few times (size 10).
    It worked out great as a T-shirt, but I also made one out of swimsuit fabric, and that was wonderful also !

    Very happy with this pattern.

  5. Amy (verified owner)

    As always, a great pattern from Love Notions. Love the built in shorts and back cutout on the top.

  6. Jaslyn (verified owner)

    I just made the top recently and it’s oh so cute! Am going to try one out on swimsuit one day!

  7. jenbailey765 (verified owner)

    I have only made the tee so far but it came out great and was really easy to make. I love the pattern because it was a great way to combine coordinating prints making expensive knits stretch further.

  8. Linda

    Love all the options, slim fit is girly and the peekaboo back is cute but modest

  9. Jaslyn (verified owner)

    Finally made the dress for my Missy. Don’t know why I have waited so long to make one! Such an easy sew and great fit! Perfect for daycare!

  10. Gaëlle Schultz

    Quick and easy sew. The peekaboo back is cute and adapted to younger girls too. I love the slim fit, it really gives the dress a classy look – it the best sense!

  11. Sarah (verified owner)

    This is quickly becoming my most used shorts pattern for my daughters. It’s a quick sew with a good fit. The peekaboo feature on the top is really cute and easy to put together. I have also overlapped the separate back pattern pieces when cutting out fabric to make a plain back basic t-shirt.

  12. Christina (verified owner)

    Can’t say enough great things about this pattern! The shorts are amazing, my active daughter is free to move about and I don’t have to worry about her dress/skirt flying up and showing anything! The shirt with peekaboo back is awesome and she loves it! Such a fun and practical pattern set.

  13. Patty

    My daughter loves to twirl and I love the coverage. Great pattern!

  14. Trista (verified owner)

    This is seriously the only pattern I need to make an awesome summer wardrobe for my littles. It’s literally packed with options.

  15. mommurri08 (verified owner)

    I love all the options that come with this pattern!!!!! Fun and easy pattern!

  16. Brianne (verified owner)

    Quick and easy sew! My daughter’s love this pattern! Fit and instructions are great.

  17. llowe7428 (verified owner)

    Not my favorite pattern for my girls. It just didn’t fit them the way I hoped.

  18. sschillawski1 (verified owner)

    The title of this says it all! We love this skirt and top because my daughter does cartwheels in it!

  19. Tamara (verified owner)

    I have my first grandbaby who is now 9 months old and this pattern will be perfect to sew fun items for her!

  20. Amelia (verified owner)

    I LOVE this pattern! I have made countless shirts and dresses for my kids and friends. Such a fun way to mix fabric patterns, scrap bust, and add a little fun to a shirt or dress.

  21. Katie Landsteiner (verified owner)

    I made a 3T shirt length version for my daughter out of one of my old college T-shirts, and it was so quick and easy to sew, even with the peekaboo detail! The only adjustment I needed to make was to let out the side seams a little to make up for the lack of stretch. Fits beautifully!
    I also made the 5T tunic in a very light sweater knit for her sister, The fit was beautiful even though she usually wears 4T, and there’s room to grow! It does look like more of a dress on her at the moment. The only modification was to lengthen the back part of the tunic with about a two inch curve for extra hind-end coverage. Then it can stay modest with leggings as she grows!
    I have one of the skirts in the works, and I’m going to experiment with turning the pattern into some kind of summery kid’s nightgown next!

  22. Jeannie M (verified owner)

    My granddaughters love the back of this pattern. It feels “special” to them, and they can mix fabrics.

  23. Megan Harvey (verified owner)

    This pattern has become a staple for my daughter’s wardrobe. I’ve made shirts, dresses, skirts, skirts with shorts, so many combinations! Her birthday skirt for the last three years has been a Cartwheel skirt!

  24. karena (verified owner)

    I made these as dresses for my daughters: not only is this pattern really cute, as a beginner sewist, I was really pleased with how easy it was to make.

  25. Jessica (verified owner)

    I’ve sewn a few different pieces using this pattern and all have turned out lovely. Instructions were easy to understand with great photos tutorial as well.
