One of the amazing things about her patterns is the size range. Children’s Piko goes from newborn all the way to 18 in kids. Women’s Piko ranges from XS-5X. I LOVE when there is a big range of sizes available because when you find a pattern you love, you want it to grow with your kids. The pattern includes 3 sleeve options: short, quarter and long. It also has a regular seam, hi-low, and sidetails.The pattern is more then worth the $9.95 price tag.
I had the awesome opportunity to test the latest EYMM-Everything Your Mama Made & More pattern, the Piko Shirt, which is made in a children’s pattern and women’s. There is even a bundle if you buy both so you can save and match with your little minions.
The pattern is so easy. I am talking 4 pattern pieces to sew, which means you have less then 10 seams to do. Now, if that is not one of the easiest ways to not only sew something cute and fast for the little ones, not to mention, a reason to spend an hour sewing for ourselves, then you might as well retire the sewing machine now. The Piko has the comfort most of us with those mama bumps like to hide, as well as versatility and style.
I plan on making quite a few more, because as a California resident and beach frequenter, this can be the perfect beach sweater for the cool sea breeze. You can dress it up or down, depending on what you make it out of and how you style it. Since I chose a solid, I can wear it with jeans, leggings, skirts, shorts, etc. Tie it up, belt it, tuck it in, or wear it loose.
And if you love the ease of the this pattern, then you will definitely want to take a look at the rest of the patterns that EYMM has. OH! Another awesome thing about the patterns (which you understand if you use PDFs often) No cutting. You just tape or glue together. The pieces are already ready to be assembled in minutes.
Looking forward to seeing what you make.
