Here’s an excellent digital sewing pattern and tutorial of a girl’s tunic top in size range 3 months to 7 years. It’s a great sewing project for a confident beginner sewer as this adorable dressy top is both quick and very easy to make.
The designer has made this Peplum Top hip length and with the waistline just a bit under the belly button. She has also given you the option of having long or 3/4 length sleeves to fit any season.
The pattern should be made with knit fabrics.
The designer advises that you shouldn’t be intimidated by the gathered waist as you just need to baste the elastic to the skirt.
