Pattern Description:
Toddler Boys and Girls Pirate pattern

Pattern Sizing:
Size 1/2 - 4. I used size 4

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Pattern looked like the photo and line drawing on the pattern envelope

Were the instructions easy to follow?Instructions were fairly easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the Coat pattern best. I can't think of anything didn't like about the pattern.

Fabric Used: I used a velveteen for the coat, poly satin for pants, and "pleather" for the belt. Hat was purchased.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The only design changes I made was to add brass buttons on the coat, and make the belt buckle out of chipboard and cover with glitter cardstock.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I would sew this pattern again if the opportunity arises; and I would recommend it to others looking to sew a boys costume that is not scary and guaranteed to get lots of compliments!


I really enjoyed sewing this pattern for my grandson! As seen by the photo, he seemed to really enjoy wearing it ;)
