Pattern Description:
Get ready for some summer fun in the Aloha Burn Blocker Suit! The Aloha is designed to keep your little ones comfortable and protected from the sun. Pattern includes short and long sleeves and features a zip-up front for easy on/off. A full zipper shield keeps the suit comfortable on the inside, prevents chafing at the neckline and keeps the zipper pull out of reach for the little ones. Mix and match your favorite fabrics with the color blocked sleeves and inseam accent.

Pattern Sizing:
3 mos. to size 12. I used the 2T.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
For the most part. Attaching the collar was tricky at the center front.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the simplicity of construction and the options for sleeve length and accent fabric.

Fabric Used:
Spandex-type from Spandex Warehouse in Dallas.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I hemmed the sleeves and legs using the banded-finish technique on the serger. So easy!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes.

Conclusion:
Quick little solution for children whose parents want to minimize using sunscreen chemicals. But, honestly, who wouldn't want to make MANY more of these for such a precious little girl? (Note: My granddaughter is cloth-diapered. Just FYI regarding fit.)

What a great project and what an especially great photo of this adorable baby. My caption: "You know I'm not a morning person, meemaw. Now put down the camera." My husband's caption was, "Wanna fight?" I told him the baby is a girl baby and he changed it to, "Don't mess with me." You've got to get this one framed!
