A clean out of the girls' cupboards revealed they were lacking in basics. Shorts, shirts and pyjamas. Nothing fancy, just stuff to wear around on weekends. So I thought I would do a little round up of patterns I know that work every time and most of them I can whip up very quickly.
Oliver & S Puppet Show Shorts. I have used this pattern so many times, it has definitely paid for itself.Christine Pants from I Think Sew - these make great pyjama bottoms. I don't bother with the elastic around the legs as it just annoys the girls. These work well in woven and knit fabrics.
Made Shorts. A really great basic pattern with tutorials on adding trim and pockets too.
Simplicity 2689. A great pattern for light fabrics such as voile.
Banyan Tee and Tee for Two Dress by Figgy. Probably my favourite knit top patterns for children.
