A simple A-line tunic dress made for my older daughter. It’s a simple shape that I love because it grows with the child: what starts out as a roomy dress becomes a tunic and eventually an apron top two or even three years later.
Some rudimentary flowers appliqued to the front of the dress, decorative coloured topstitching around the hem, neckline and armscyes and a one-button shoulder closure. Made for her at 18 months old in November 2009, it still fits as an apron top today. The pictures aren’t great because, well, have you ever tried to take a picture of a toddler? :)
mid-weight brown cotton twill, quilting cotton charm squares (for the applique)
