Today's Vintage May guest needs practically no introduction! I'm sure you all know the lovely Anna from Noodlehead, and her fabulous sewn creations. We've been blog pals since way back when-seriously since the beginning of blogging, Anna? haha well I always love checking in with her and she is so sweet and sincere. :) You've of course seen some of her tutorials, no doubt one of them being the gathered clutch. Who hasn't made one of those? Besides being the queen of bags, wallets, etc...(plus creating awesome patterns!), she has tutorials for adorable skirts, a car pillow, and this super useful diaper pouch. (I would know, she sent me the pink one when I had Charlotte and I still use it to this day) She's here today with a vintage-modern tunic-that fabric is to die for! Take it away, Anna.
I gave you a little hint earlier this month. I was digging through my brain and wanted something simple, a fun little tunic. It has a retro/vintage vibe to it, especially if you change up the fabrics. I was to make about one hundred of these, they were so fun to make!
I think of little details are what makes garments really stand out. Any opportunity to add a different print or trim really makes it so much more special. I added a hem facing, button placket facing and bias tape trim for this tunic.
The pleats at the front and back of this tunic make it really cute without being frilly or overly girly. And I think the sleeveless option really makes it comfortable to wear as well as making it something you can layer with a long sleeve shirt for colder weather.
These bunnies are to die for! It's an older print by Anna Griffin and I just love it. Those little bunnies make me happy! And the bias trim/placket fabric is by Kokka.
If anyone is interested, I was considering turning this into a pattern perhaps with sizes 12 months - 5/6T Let me know in the comments, I think can be a really versatile pattern with fun options!
Thanks Anna! I hope she does make a pattern-it looks so versatile!
See what Danielle from My Sparkle has made today over on Skirt as Top!
