When new patterns are released by my fave pattern company, I always read what the designer says about them - one of the things that struck me when the Hide and Seek Dress and Tunic was released was that the designer indicated that the yoke would be a great place to feature an unusual or special fabric.
Well, I bought that pattern. Never made it.
Then, the Elizabeth Line from Tula Pink arrived. What to do with a beautiful portrait of a 16th century Queen Elizabeth? Well, put it right in the middle of my 5 year old's chest, what else!
We will be taking a quick trip to the east coast in a couple of weeks, and my daughter's wardrobe is not ready for this. I decided to make this pattern in tunic length out of a fairly substantial knit - magenta ponte de roma double knit from the shop. I'm SO happy with my decision....
Seriously, who else on the planet will have a tunic like this one??!!
She likes it, and already got unsolicited compliments from her father and older sister, so success!
Note on the pattern - this is a size 4 with three inches in length added. She can definitely wear this for at least a year, I'd imagine.
