vintage may: bunny tunic

[Re-posting this from when I shared it as part of Vintage May over at Craftiness is Not Optional, I had asked about a pattern, and I’m working on putting more of my own spin on it and will keep you updated – thanks for your enthusiam!  I also have a fun tutorial coming up next week, I can’t wait to share it – there are zippers involved!!! wohoo!]

I gave you a little hint earlier this month.  I was digging through my brain and wanted something simple, a fun little tunic.  It has a retro/vintage vibe to it, especially if you change up the fabrics.  I was to make about one hundred of these, they were so fun to make!

I think of little details are what makes garments really stand out.  Any opportunity to add a different print or trim really makes it so much more special.  I added a hem facing, button placket facing and bias tape trim for this tunic.

The pleats at the front and back of this tunic make it really cute without being frilly or overly girly.  And I think the sleeveless option really makes it comfortable to wear as well as making it something you can layer with a long sleeve shirt for colder weather.

These bunnies are to die for!  It’s an older print by Anna Griffin and I just love it.  Those little bunnies make me happy! And the bias trim/placket fabric is by Kokka.

If anyone is interested, I was considering turning this into a pattern perhaps with sizes 12 months – 5/6T  Let me know in the comments, I think can be a really versatile pattern with fun options!

    Would love to see this pattern! Is surprisingly hard to find a simple girls tunic pattern. So that’s a big yes please from me!

  34. Mamemimo 06.17.2012 at 5:15 am #

    Yes please, we need the pattern.

  35. The Pritchard's 06.17.2012 at 11:13 am #

    yes please!! this pattern would get so much use at my house!! so cute

  36. quirky granola girl 06.17.2012 at 9:34 pm #

    i love those pleats! any chance you’d make an adult pattern? :)

  37. quirky granola girl 06.17.2012 at 9:35 pm #

    ha! i guess i’m not the only one that wants it in ladies sizes!

  38. Nicole Lavin-Williams 06.18.2012 at 12:18 pm #

    Yes, yes, yes please! Would love the pattern. :)

  39. Margaret C 06.19.2012 at 3:13 pm #

    This is beautiful – yes, I’d like a ladies size too, but I’d particularly love a childs size to fit an 8-9 yr old. BTW, this is for my GORGEOUS 5yr old who has ALWAYS been off the charts height-wise. She’s projected to be over 6ft as an adult and I really struglle to find age-appropriate clothing for her. Thanks for considering !

    Love the tunic and I would most definately buy a pattern!!


  41. Kristin 06.19.2012 at 9:23 pm #

    Lovely! When I saw it on Vintage May, I crossed my fingers for a tutorial! PLEASE!

  42. Jennifer Andersen Photography 06.20.2012 at 9:06 am #

    I’d would love to buy the pattern for that tunic!

  43. Amy Castillo 06.22.2012 at 7:14 pm #

    sweet and simple. just like summer should be!

  44. sweary sewer 06.27.2012 at 12:45 pm #

    i came here to say: adult sizes, please!

  45. Eric and Carrie 06.27.2012 at 1:40 pm #

    Adorable top! I would totally make this for my daughter if you made it into a pattern! Love!

  46. Lindsey 06.28.2012 at 2:08 pm #

    I’d love to make this for my daughter, I think the 5/6 would be a big snug, she wears a 7, but I KNOW she’d love it! (I think adult sizes would be awesome, too!)

  47. Kristie 07.04.2012 at 8:58 am #

    This is adorable, Anna! I would totally buy the pattern, but please keep the sizes going…my older daughter will want one, too :). Maybe up to size 10 or so? Heck, I would love to wear an adult version! So very cute!

  48. Emily Schildhouse 07.05.2012 at 11:25 pm #

    I’m just catching up on blog posts and squealed when I saw this!! I am hoping the pattern is in the works – this would look so adorable on a couple of girls over here!

  49. terrieannie 07.08.2012 at 11:49 pm #

    I don’t even have a little girl to sew for, but I would buy this pattern, too!

  50. terrieannie 04.14.2014 at 3:02 pm #

    Did you ever make a tutorial for this dress? I’m looking for simple summer clothing in the 5/6T range for a friend’s daughter.
