The Mulberry Tunic, by Olga of Kid Approved, is the fourth pattern that I had the opportunity to test for Willow & Co (you can see the other three here, here, and here) and just love this one!
Eeek! Isn’t it adorable on her?!
This pattern is unisex too, so I need to get my act together and make one of A as well. The pattern has an option for a hood, I think he *needs* one with a hood!
I sewed the shirt up in a size 18 months for Em. Before I sewed the buttons on I thought it was going to be too big, but once I got the buttons all on and put it on her, it was just perfect! I love the looser fit.
I used some polka dot fabric from Riley Blake’s Sunny Happy Skies line (isn’t that an awesome name for a fabric line?) I don’t think you can ever go wrong with polka dots and they are darling on this shirt.
The shirt has pockets in the side seams which Em was excited to find. She is always looking of pockets in her clothing and is usually pretty upset if she doesn’t find any…this girl needs somewhere to store her rocks :)
All of Willow & Co’s new pattern line will be released next week, make sure you check it out, they have some really great stuff!
