KCWC!! Whoop whoop! Are you sewing along? Naturally I love sewing for my kids, so any excuse to devote a week to sewing for them, yes please. (I don't usually need an excuse but with this pregnancy a little kick in the butt is a good thing) You see the kids need clothes that fit them, because they keep growing. Darn them. I went back to a favorite to start things off. The Sadie Tunic Pattern. It has always been one of my favorite Tunics in Abbey's closet and I new she was in need of a new one.
You can find the Sadie Tunic Pattern HERE (sizes 2-10)
pattern. Be sure to add seam allowance along the lines you cut since you will be sewing the pieces back together. I cut a curved piece out of the side of the tunic pattern and then I cut two strips off the bottom.
2. Sew the pieces all back together to create the whole pattern piece again. Sewing a curved edge can be a little tricky but if you start at one end and work to the other matching up the raw ends it sews really nicely.
3. Then I top stitch all the sewn seams so they lay nice and flat and smooth.
4. For this one I also added a large heart in the center. I cut out a heart and I added fusible interfacing to the back. Then I did a satin stitch (tight zig zag) around the border of the heart.
5. The only other change I made since I only had 4 buttons instead of 6 I put 2 on each shoulder and then I stitched the end of the button flap down.
6. Thats all there is to it. A whole new Sadie Tunic.
