I made these for my 4 year old daughter and they turned out pretty cute. There were a little bit of difference in the pattern pieces but it worked out. I also made 4 tabs with buttons instead of the 2 that the pattern called for and I added them to the inside seam as well.

Cute pattern and I didn't have any trouble printing the pattern pieces or lining them up.

I was hesitant to purchase these based on some other reviews, but decided to go ahead because I own aot of the peekaboo patterns and have never had an issue. I made the 18m size for my daughter. I had no problems printing the pattern out. I set my pages to scale none and set it to fast draft to save ink and printed pages 9-18. All the pieces went together and matched up with no problems. I consider myself to be a beginner. Just started sewing in oct of 2011. (like literally first time I ever touched a sewing machine was 0ct 2011) The only changes I made were that I didnt have cording on hand so I used some of the double fold bias tape that I had left over for the belt. It turned out really well and fit really well too. Im glad I went against the other reviews. I feel that maybe the one reviewer was having her own printer/computer problems/glitches that prevented the pattern pieces to fit together correctly. My computer uploaded the pdf file with no problems and immediately started printing all the pages I asked. I wish this site allowed you to upload pics along with your review, but I dont see an option for that.

I made the pants after some trouble with the pattern, but did not like the fit. May try again sometime later with inexpensive fabric, just to see if maybe I did something wrong the first time.

I have found that these pants are more trouble than they are worth. I tried and tried to get page 10 to print. FINALLY after about 12 attempts and crashed computer later I got them to print.

Now this morning I am so excited to get to stitch the pants. I get the pattern for size 18m all lined up and traced out. Go to match the seams up and What do you know the back is a good inches longer than the front. I check each pattern piece to the one I cut out and they are correct yet the print out for the back is off so much for each size that by the time I traced the 18m it was inches off. Do I just cut that off the top? Maybe but why the guess work. This is so disappointing. I am an experienced sewer and can probably figure this all out but believe me I would rather use the TieDyeDiva patterns I already own. They are to the T on print out and directions. I really do not feel I will purchase another pattern from peek-a-boo. I so frustrated to have wasted my fabric like this.

In my honest opinion this pattern is NOT for the inexperienced. Its adorable if I can get it worked out. I hope I can save the fabric I already cut.
