Peeka Top for Women

Remember that adorable little Peeka tee I did for Anna a while back? Here’s a pic to refresh your memory:

Well guess what… Kerry from Unfancy Designs is now offering it in women’s sizes! Yup. And I got to be a part of her testing group again. 😀

The details-  So just like the girls’ Peeka, this one comes with options. The women’s pattern includes 2 views:

  • View A: A more fitted “not-so-basic” tee with open peeka-boo-shoulder (hense the name)
  • View B: This version has a back yoke with inverted pleat, a curved hem, and of course the peak-a-boo shoulder.
  • Sizes range from XS-XXXL

In addition to the 2 views, you also have 3 sleeve lengths to choose from: short sleeve, 3/4 length, or long. Perfect for all seasons.

As a stay-at-home mom, I wanted a shirt that’s casual enough for everyday wear, but trendy enough to look like I didn’t just roll out of bed. So for my shirt, I went with the basics. I chose to do the fitted view A with a long sleeve in a contrasting color. I am, as they say, vertically challenged so I did have to alter the length a tad, but otherwise the fit is perfect. I must say, I’m impressed at how well it turned out! The Peeka will be a staple in my wardrobe for sure 😀

We’re pretty in pink in our Mommy and Me Peekas 🙂

I have to admit, I didn’t pick out the material for my shirt. I was standing there looking at my pile of fabric and couldn’t make up my mind. Too much to chose from! Liam, my 8 year old, walks up and says, “Mom, you like pink” and points at this Roseberry Pink Heathered French Terry from Raspberry Creek.

“And this one has sprinkles on it,” and hands me this Rainbow Heather on White Hacci Sweater Knit from Girl Charlee.

Wow! He made it seem so easy, ha! I actually love his selections too. Way to go, Liam! He immediately dubbed this my “Strawberry Poptart shirt.” I guess it looks like a strawberry poptart with sprinkles. Lol! Silly boy <3
