~Flowered Tunic~

Also over Thanksgiving, I made this tunic. I already had it cut out--I cut it out in September for the Kid's Clothes Week Challenge which I signed up for and didn't sew for. LOL It's made out of cozy flannel.

It was supposed to be a dress but the pattern was a bit short, and I didn't have enough fabric to cut it longer. So I took a chance and sewed it the way it was. It turned out shorter than I like for a dress so I'm calling it a tunic, and bought a pair of leggings to go with it. =)

It felt like it needed trimming of some sort, so I applied ribbon right on top of the ruffle, which I randomly pleated. I found an applique flower that matched the fabric perfectly, and added that too. I've seen instructions for the pleated ribbon in various places and I really like the randomness of it.

This is also going under the Christmas tree. :-)

This is so cute! I really like the outfits with leggings for Caroline. She is still learning how to sit like a lady. :-)
