Swingset Tunics

We are going to Florida again in a few weeks and I've been busy making Ava a few new outfits to wear while were there.   -We're staying for 2 weeks this year instead of 1- ya hoo!! -  I finished up a couple tops for Ava yesterday.  I used the Swing Tunic pattern from Oliver and S. This is one of my favorite patterns right now! 

This fabric is by Amy Butler.  I believe it's called "happy dots"?

The fabric for this one is by Anthology.







Here's Ava wearing the one I made her last year from this pattern.  I used the 2T size then and this year I made the size 4.  I wanted to make sure it will still fit when Summer decides to rolls around- so sad to see how much she's grown :(  my baby is growing up too fast!
There is one part of the instructions that are a tad confusing and the Oliver and S blog has a great little tutorial with a little more detailed instructions on how to attach the ruffle to the back bodice.


Although this is a tunic pattern it would make a really sweet little dress by just adding some length!
