GYCT Pattern Review - Shorties Nightgown and Bloomers

I recently had the opportunity to test the first children's clothing pattern being released by Chelsea from Get Your Crap Together. This pattern has a vintage feel and a couple of different options. I love that it goes from 6 months all the way up to a size 8 so it fits both my girls. There is a top and bloomers or a nightgown option as well as puff sleeves or sleeveless. 

I tested the size 6 short sleeve top and bloomers for my youngest and she was hamming it up for pictures as you can see. This came together quickly and used less than a yard of each fabric.  I can't believe how cute these are. The bloomers are my favorite part.

Since the top is a little roomier I decided to try the size 8 in knit for my oldest. She usually wears a 10 but the 8 fit her great. She isn't a fan of elastic sleeves so she asked that I leave those off. I also made a band to fit around the sleeves instead of adding the lining that the pattern called for. When she saw it she said it needed more color at the bottom so I added a band of the turquoise there as well. That was all she needed to put a smile on her face. 
Since these came together so fast I decided to try it again but with fleece this time. I also went down a size in the top. So this version is a size 5 top and size 6 bloomers. The fit is perfect and who doesn't love Strawberry Shortcake, right?
Just to show you how fun it can be to take pictures of an ornery 4 year old, here's some outtakes. :)
This pattern will be available for instant download in February 20, 2014 so keep your eyes open.

**I received a free copy of this pattern to test. All opinions are my own**


  1. Thanks Erin! Glad you tested for me! They all turned out super cute.

    1. We had so much fun with these. Thanks for letting us test!

  2. Love these. What sweet jammies. I adore the bloomers. I love anything with a vintage feel. All your posts make me wish that I could sew clothes. Sigh. At least I can admire yours.

    1. Thanks Amy! And you CAN sew. I've seen your quilts. I have no doubt you could make some lovely clothes.
