Tula Pink Meets Oliver and S

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.
