We spent forever in my sewing room staring at what felt like miles of fabric before my daughter finally settled on some napping foxes from the Tula Pink Chipper Line and some purple Modern Solids from In the Beginning (both purchased from Ozark Fabrics on Facebook).
Okay, so as usual, some basics about the pattern:
- Sizes range from 2T - 12 so this pattern can be used for a pretty long chunk of time
- Two length options: tunic or knee length
- Simple bodice construction for endless embellishment opportunity
- Top to bottom buttons for the tunic
- Two closure options for the dress: all buttons or half length buttons
- Clear, concise directions and photos for each step

From start to finish, I think each tunic took about an hour and a half to put together! The construction was so simple, but the result was such an amazingly beautiful garment. When you're putting this together, the lining will be smaller than the main fabric so don't panic when you put the dress together, and it seems like it's "off". It really isn't. The lining is smaller to lessen the bulk once constructed.
I used snaps for both of my tops, but you have the option of either snaps or buttons. It's really a matter of preference or fabric choice that will decide for you what you want to do when it comes time to get the closures put on!
I really do love the overall design and look of this pattern! The tunic is perfect with jeans, leggings, shorts...pretty much anything, and the dress can easily be dressed up for special occasions! One of the testers trimmed her tunic with lace, and it turned out so, so precious! I'm kind of wanting to do one in denim...
Okay, so now for some great news! This pattern is currently available at a special release sale price of $5! You can grab your copy over at the Snuggle My Baby Etsy store today, but that sale price is for a limited time so don't miss out!
