I Love tunics dresses in the summer and tunic shirts in the fall! I made this specifically for the babes fall wardrobe - after eyeing up this pattern for ages (LOVE the pattern btw, so easy to follow the directions, separate pattern pieces for each age - so no tracing and then cutting). I won the pattern in a great giveaway from this blog!
Now with the thoughts of fall I know pink isn't everyone's first fall color choice... But I LOVE pink! and I knew I wanted to add a fall fairy to it, and pink goes perfectly with the fall colors in my humble opinion.
Here is a close up of my fall fairy. I drew the pattern for this fairy and cute it out on felt, used heat and bond to get the pieces to stick together and then onto the shirt, and finally hand stitched around it. Note her adorable acorn hat - love love love <3
The back: (the pattern doesn't call for a button up, that is my own spin on things, mainly out of concern for the shirt going over my daughter's head with ease.)
Cute? I think so. Love it with her skinny jeans and slouchy hat!
The side detail. Snack cups slow her down long enough to get a non blurry pic! (nearly 14 months and busy busy all the time)
I just think it's cute that she wants to throw leaves over the edge of the deck.

Another view of the back:
since I made this with fall in mind I've entered it into
PS. If there is interest I can scan in the fairy pattern so you can get it for yourself (for your own personal use)
