Sewing Pattern Testing- LilyGiggle- The Poppy Bubble Tunic

Posted by Heather at Sunday, June 28, 2015

PDF sewing pattern designer, Beth, of LilyGiggle fame, has updated and re-released the Poppy Bubble Tunic! I was able to give the new updates a test-run and I'm so glad that I did!

Let's talk Poppy Bubble Tunic pattern basics, first;

-The updated Poppy Bubble Tunic is written for sizes 6m-12y.
-The Poppy Bubble Tunic is a knit bodice with tied shoulder straps and a knit, bubble skirt.

-The updated Poppy Bubble Tunic also includes instructions for a woven dress skirt.
-The Poppy Bubble Tunic includes size layers- ie, only print the size that you need/want.
-The Poppy Bubble Tunic pattern includes a size chart, finished measurements, fabric requirements and a cutting chart.
-Directions for added flower decoration are also included in the Poppy Bubble Tunic pattern.
-The Poppy Bubble Tunic is a great way to upcycle old T-shirts and other knit remnants.

I sewed up a size six Poppy Bubble Tunic. I did not add embellishments to the bodice as I found my fabric to be a bit "busy." I purchased my four-way stretch cotton lycra locally at Hancock Fabrics. The orange and yellow bodice linings were remnants for previous projects (originally purchased from Purpleseamstress Fabrics, online).

This was my very first "bubble" anything. I was never quite sure of the whole "bubble" concept and I wasn't sure how flattering it could be. Welp, I'm now a believer- The Poppy Bubble Tunic by LilyGiggle is downright adorable!!

The Poppy Bubble Tunic PDF sewing pattern was easy to follow and easy to read. It walked me through the steps of creating the perfect "bubble" skirt. I love that I can just print the size that I need. Plus, with only pattern pieces for the bodice (five pages, to be exact- the skirt and elastic are cut measurements), it's easy on the printer ink and paper, too! Win!

With the tunic length, the Poppy Bubble Tunic has plenty of room for Lil' Miss to move and groove, yet still be fun and fancy free! The Poppy Bubble Tunic can be worn as-is (as shown), or layered over a shirt for cooler months. I love a great pattern that can be worn year-round!!

For a short time, the Poppy Bubble Tunic is on sale for five dollars. That's right- just five bucks- totally worth the investment!

Thank you, Beth, for another fun pattern! I really enjoyed sewing up something a little different and fun!
