Anya finally had a chance to wear the tunic I sewed for her several weeks ago. This past weekend we went to a wedding and she wore the tunic* there along with the red sweater I made for her. It made for a smashing ensemble, if I do say so.
I've used Burda patterns for a few things for my kids. The instructions aren't great, but so far everything I've made has been simple enough for me to figure out. I've also been pretty happy with the fit of everything I've made, and that says a lot. I've recently been browsing the Burdastyle online store and I'm tempted to try out some of the digital patterns if I can ever catch up with the backlog of projects I want to do first.
I do not know if Anya will wear this more than a handful of times. For one thing, she is growing like a weed (as all 6yo children do), and for another, she considers this a dress up item, so she will only wear it for special occasions like weddings and piano recitals.
That's okay. It's worth the trouble to get a few pictures like these.
