Love Notions- Mommy and Me Origami Tunic/Cardigan

Today, I'm sewing up the Love Notions Origami Tunic in a coordinated Mommy and Me set. Miss Seven (and a half, she'll remind you! ;), still loves to dress similarly and I'm just riding that wave as long as it lasts (it's so fleeting!).

Love Notions Ladies Origami Tunic (as a cardigan)- BACK

I sewed up a size small, non-handkerchief hem, long sleeve Love Notions Origami Tunic cardigan. I did shorten the front and back bodice pattern pieces for my 5'-0" height. I also shortened the sleeves and brought them in 1/2" to fit my arms, better. I love the easy wear-ability and the cascading front of the Love Notions Origami Tunic as a cardigan.  I just wanted to switch things up this time and make a cardi as I transition my wardrobe to fall layering pieces. I've made this pattern before as a regular tunic and I still get lots of wear from it.

Missy is a dresses and leggings kind of gal- especially as we head into fall. Yet, she still plays hard needs to be able to move when it comes to her clothing. The Love Notions Origami Tunic is the perfect solution- perfect to cover her bum (in leggings), long enough to *almost* be a dress and easy enough to wear while at recess! I sewed her a straight size eight, handkerchief hem, banded neckline, 3/4 sleeves Love Notions Origami Tunic.

I agree this is a great make for girls that like to look great and play hard. You both look fantastic. Love mommy and me, but I never commit the time to do two things at once.
