Hello,

Oh Ladies, seriously you could make a new outfit everyday for a month and never look the same with this pattern. Thats how many option are included! What’s also great is it comes in a LARGE size range, newborn to 12yrs.

I mentioned this on my last Blog post that I have been letting my daughter pick out the fabric and pattern for each Blog Tour I do. So with this one I let her pick out the Fabric and together we decided on how to play with the Paneled Sunsuit. She wanted a maxi skirt after seeing several from Jak& Pepper and also from a few maxi skirts that I have from Abercrombie & Fitch. I choose to pair the skirt with a cropped , blousy version of the Sunsuit Top.

Here is what I did for the skirt:

  • Individual Maxi Skirt with elastic waistband
  • Made a size 10 but a 12 length so she could wear it over her waist to cover her tummy
  • Cutting- I cut the skirt wider then the pattern piece for both front and back (see picture below).
  • Flared the skirt out at the same point as the pattern piece
  • Finished look was a tulip shape

Here is what I did for the Top

  • Individual Top
  • Made a size 10 overall
  • When cutting, I cut the top wider – 3″ wider, at the hem,  then the original pattern piece
  • I am also cut the hem at a straight line (see pic below)
  • I only used the front and back pattern pieces, no liner
  • Used bias tape around armhole- Facing method
  • Cut 2 Top Front and Back and sandwiched the strap between the two.
  • Straps tie at shoulder
  • Added trim-fringe Fun!!!
