Last week I was able to test out a new baby and toddler pattern from Petite Stitchery. The Franken Tank is LOADED with options and goes from newborn all the way to 4T sizing! I was so excited to try out a few different versions for my littles.
First, let’s take a look at the options available:
*Simple Tank Top
*Hooded Tank Top
*Skirt (with or without shorties)
*Romper (One piece or with a waistband, with or without hood)
*Dress (with or without hood, with or without shorties)
When you calculate all the options it’s practically endless (over 40 different combinations), you can create an entire summer wardrobe in ONE pattern! The biggest drawback to the pattern is that the largest size is 4T and my older kids are jealous! Hopefully a big kids size is in the works as it would be a huge hit as well.
My favorite option so far is the romper with a waistband for the baby sizes. I made three in testing for my 3 month old and already have several more planned! Both of these rompers pictured are made with fabrics from Raspberry Creek. Their fabric is a dream to work with and these prints are so fun for summer! The snap panel makes diaper changes a cinch and the neckband is stretchy enough to easily fit over the head. You can customize it so many ways to your own liking as well by adding htv to the bodice, faux drawstring, a lace pocket accent, fringe on the neckline, and the list goes on!
For my 4 year old the dress is my favorite option (so far!). She LOVES all things twirly and this dress did not disappoint. I have a hooded dress planned next for her. The fabric for this dress is from the Doodles line at Joann. The doodles fabric was on super sale so I scooped up some adorable prints last week.
The pattern is on sale for a short time so scoop up the pattern and whip up a summer wardrobe for you little! Grab your pattern here and tell me what options you sew up!
