I love matchy matchy, and making summer outfits, so this is the best for both. I used McCall's Pattern M5836 and thought it went together quick and easy (a few days of hit-and-miss sewing during naps, etc). Wait for patterns to go on sale at JoAnn's, then it'll only be a dollar or two. I liked this pattern because there were no buttons or zippers - truly an easy pattern. I made both girls a size 3, but should have made a size 2 for the littler one. I also ended up having to take the straps in a little. So when a sale comes around, grab a pattern (look for anything that says "EASY") and some material (it's fun to let the kids pick their own) and attempt sewing. You can do it!
