This time it was F’s turn to get a new tunic to match this one I made for M a while ago. I have to admit that I have a serious “problem” dressing my girls and I am trying hard to change it, but I can’t dress them without, at least, being matching!! So this time I used the same fabric, but with a bit darker pink stripes and a different pattern 😉
The fabric is, again, a cotton lawn, great for this time of the year and the pattern is the Front-buttoned Smock tunic (view n) from the book “Sew Chic Kids” in size 4 (110 cm).
I would have never guessed that the pattern for the front panel is the same as the dress I made M for Easter, but it is!! Also the construction way of the front is very similar to the one from M’s tunic.
Although I like the tunic and the way it fits F, the lace detail in the front is one of my favourite things along with the ruffle in the sleeve (very predictable, right?).
F was a happy girl today playing and enjoying the good weather we are finally having around here 🙂
We are still in school holidays so this weather is really a bonus and we better enjoy it while it last. We went for a nice walk (or better say run), with the girls were wearing their matching tunics. We were exhausted by the end of the day, but feeling really good. It is funny how the weather is changes so much our mood 😉
Hope you are having a nice week 🙂
