the pattern: Charlie tunic from Rae
the fabric: I used a cotton/linen blend I bought at Purl Soho this summer for the main fabric. The facings are made from a Birch fabrics organic cotton (picked up at Whipstitch earlier this year).
the sewing: Love how easy this pattern was to follow! The only headache I ran into was sewing on the sleeve facings. It’s just plain hard to sew with that small of an opening- but the end result is so cute that it was worth it! I was in such a hurry to show this to you tonight that I took pics without having buttons on it. Little Man was so grumpy and ready for bed that I couldn’t wait if I wanted to get this up tonight. So excuse my grumpy looking model and check out his cute new shirt ! This is a great fall shirt because he can wear a tee underneath it and be nice and warm on the chilly days. Also I just think the swingy silhouette of the tunic is so cute. I will say that the 18 month size just fits him so when (definitely not if 🙂 ) I make another, I will make the next size up since there’s not much give as you pull this on.
the fabrics are beautiful and it fits perfectly!
so so cute!!!
He couldn’t be cuter, cranky or not!
Why thank you:)
