This tunic is an intermediate or “advanced beginner” project. I would recommend this project to someone who had some experience sewing simple garments before. Clear instructions for all of these techniques are given (they are not prerequisite skills), so an advanced beginner who has confidence could tackle this. Appropriate for an intermediate sewist who has some experience with various machine-sewn projects before. I am always happy to assist you by answering questions via email (see pattern for email link) if you should run across anything that is giving you trouble!

12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T

solid woven fabric for main tunic (1 yd needed for 12mo-3T / 1.25 yd needed for 4T-5T)*
1/3 yard or more fabric for facings (quilting cotton works great!)
Interfacing for facings is not recommended unless you are using very lightweight materials such as gauzes or or other sheer fabrics.

*Recommended fabrics: linen/tencel blends (shown in picture above), shirtings, or other lightweight cotton or linen materials are recommended. The more drape your fabric has, the more movement the tunic will have when worn, so quilting cotton may make this a little stiff, but some of the lighter-weight quilting cottons will work fine!

A printing chart is provided on the first page of the file so that you can save paper and ink by printing just the pattern sheets you need.
