Description

I decided to work with Option 3’s Sateen Blouse free ePattern as the basis of this entry. I made the following changes and additions:
1. I sized the basic pattern for a child
2. The side seams were flared to give the tunic an A-line silhouette
3. Made the hemline asymmetrical – the back hem was lowered and rounded and the
front hemline was shortened and given a convex curve.
4. Added a double circular flounce to the sleeves and hemline.
5. Added folded pintucks to the tunic front.
6. Changed the neckline.

Finally, I used colorful cotton voile to convey the light floaty feel of the tunic.

Thank you for hosting/creating such a fun challenge.

Material Notes

Material used was from the Anna Marie Horner Little Folks collection for Free Spirit Westminster fibers.
