Simplicity 4208



Pattern review
Description:
Girls' dress, tunic or top, bolero, pants and bag

Sizing:
8 to 16 or 8-1/2 to 16-1/2

Instructions:
Fine, very simple style and easy to sew tunic

Likes/Dislikes:
Easy to sew, trendy top with many variations. No dislikes.

Changes:
I added one pocket to the design. My daughter is not so sure about this but says to leave it on for now. I thought the top needed something else. I am going to get a couple of large white buttons for the front straps. I also added 3" to the length of the shorter tunic but is was about 1-1/2" too much.








What you might change:
I think this style would be better with the straps attached on the back, then sew buttonholes/buttons on the front. I think my daughter will struggle getting it on. I will get better pictures when my daughter wears the tunic.

This pattern is so basic but you can do many things with it. Here is some inspiration from the Limited Too website:
