Pattern Review: Breanna’s Peekaboo Shorts, Pants & Capris by Simple Life Pattern Company

Simple Life Pattern Company just re-released Breanna’s Peekaboo Shorts, Pants and Capris with updated fit and sizing options.

Breanna’s is an advanced beginner pattern for woven or knit fabrics with sizing that runs from 2T up to size 12.  There are three different lengths to choose from:  shorts, capris or pants and have optional side ties for a ruched look.  The waistband is a flat front and elastic back.

I sewed up the shorts option since it is already HOT here in South Florida and this is going to be our summer uniform this year!  I opted for the optional side ties and used cotton woven fabric from Hobby Lobby.  The pattern was very easy to grade between sizing for that perfect fit.  My daughter is wearing a size 6 in width and size 7 in length.  We paired these shorts with a Kyra Cross Back Top in the A-Line fit in cotton lycra from Purple Seamstress.  This was also my first time sewing up Kyra and it is my new favorite!  This top has so many options and is perfect for summer.  I love the A-Line top and dress but the twirly skirt option gets my girls every time (and Kyra has both!).

 

The pattern is on sale 20% off through May 13 and I can’t wait to see yours sewn up.   If you buy this pattern on sale let us know what you think!
