...Ava's Easter Tunic

I came across this adorable tutorial at Craftiness is not Optional (where I happen to get all of my girls dress patterns now...) and I thought it would be adorable to make for Ava for Easter!

I went along to Spotlight the other day and spent a small fortune as they had 40% off and stocked up on my fabric for the winter. I'm planning on making lots more dresses and tunics for Ava's winter wardrobe and I'm currently really inspired to get sewing-which is good as I've been at a bit of a loss of late...

I'm not going to put up step by stem instructions as the above link is just great if you're interested in making the same pattern, but here are some photos in case you want to do some of the same tricks as I've done!

Embellishments (ribbon etc)
Blank paper or baking paper to make your pattern
A button
Sewing Machine
Trace a top that currently fits bubby. To ensure it's the right size, make sure the top's a bit bigger rather than snug as the fabric will be different and make end up being a bit too snug!
Cut out your pattern pieces (please don't just follow this, SO many more details over at this tutorial)

 Cut out your fabric on the fold like so

Add your embellishments
 This part is tricky but absolutely worth it!
 And here it is!!

Depending on what day it is, you may find this post linked up at any of these fabulous parties!!
