Peekaboo Pocket Pants: A Pattern Review

I’m typically posting about pattern testing or sharing my creations for blog tours, but today I’m doing an official pattern review for Little Kiwis Closet.  This pattern was provided to me at no cost for an honest review, so that is what I will be doing today. I’ll sneak you a picture here, but you have to promise to keep reading! *This post does contain affiliate links.  If you decide you need this pattern and purchase it from my post I can earn some change to support my fabric habit at no additional cost to you.

I stitched up the PeekabooPocket Pants*, 0-5years size range.  These come in multiple size ranges, so be sure to purchase the one you need. I’m always afraid I’m going to mess up and purchase a size range I can’t use.  These listings are clearly marked, so you shouldn’t have an issue.

Pattern Features:

  • Sewing Level: Beginner
  • Gender Neutral Pattern
  • Materials List
  • Fabric Requirement Chart
  • Finished Garment Size Chart
  • Pant and Capri Length
  • Optional Pockets (Which are so cute, why wouldn’t you?)
  • Elastic OR Yoga Waistband
  • Pattern Pieces AND Cutting Chart for Rectangular Pieces (Choose your cutting method.)
  • Designed for Cloth Diapered Bums

I was super excited to get these pants stitched up.  I had been wanting to find a quick, stylish knit pant pattern for everyday play wear for my girls. It has been time for me to do a few more things that Presley would prefer to wear, and I think these pants hit the spot.

Printing is between 6-11 pages depending on whether or not you use the cutting chart or not. This pattern does not include layered sizing for printing, which I always love to have. However, this is not a breaking point for me. The pants come together very quickly, even when including the pocket feature. The directions and photos within the tutorial were very clear.  The written directions include bold print where things are important to help with any confusion you could have.  The fit of these pants is what I describe as a comfy urban style.  They aren’t quite as baggy as a harem, but still have a similar look about them.  The ability to wear a cloth diaper with these pants would normally be a great perk for our house, but…. WE ARE FINALLY POTTY TRAINED! (with the exception of a few accidents here and there.)  I’m ready to sell my diapers and buy some more fabric!

Overall, I’m very pleased with the finished product from this pattern.  I will make these again for sure.  I think a few pairs without pockets could make some great pajamas too.  What do you think? Would you do pajamas or play wear?

I hope this review has given you some extra information to help you decide if you need to add to your pattern stash.  This would be one worth purchasing and stitching up.  Fast, easy, and cute.

  1. I think that the pattern will work for sleepwear or playwear , with fabric design selection being the deciding factor as to which category defines the final product. It is an adorable outfit for two adorable little girls. I love the “alike but different” theme you stay with for them. Great job talented daughter of mine!
