seersucker tunic

tunic

I love this tunic, seriously, love it.  I had envisioned it for a long time after making this one.

The buttons really make it I think, they reminded us of sour cheery balls, yum.  Those things are addicting, and I don’t even like candy that much.

After thinking about making the pattern for the first tunic, I added this little twist, some fun pockets and I think I’m satisfied.

It’s fun and simple and will look great in lots of different fabrics! And don’t worry, you might be seeing a little parade of these this week.

I’ll be working on this pattern more, I think I’ll be able to go up to a girls 5/6, possibly a size larger.  

Thanks for stopping by and always being so supportive.

    Very cute. It looks deliciously cool and so pretty at the same time. I think my little girl would love a tunic like this one as well! (And stick her tongue out just as far ;-))

    Oh yes, I love it so much! I’m always looking for good “she’s wearing a dress but also good for layering because that’s a must for our weather most of the time” type garments, and this looks so perfect for that. I can envision it in so many patterns and weights of fabric, too. Can’t wait to give it a whirl! :)
