On Monday night I had it in my head that I wanted to make Ella a tunic. My piano students left, we ate dinner, put the kids to bed and I set to work. (Thankfully Brent understood that I was on a mission, and was content with watching the World Series without me!) For a pattern I used an outgrown sweatshirt and a ripped apart Old Navy t-shirt. I cut a hair tie in half, and used the pieces as button loops because, I confess, I do not know how to make a buttonhole!! (Wonder how long I can get away with that?) At the end of the night I had this!
I thought it would look cute as a jumper, but decided to add some sleeves. When it was a jumper, Ella refused to try it on. Once I added sleeves though, no problem!
She was in it by snack time.
