Madeline’s Collection – The Embroidered Tunic!

I wasn’t sure what to start with this week, but after going to Madeline’s gymnastics class and having two separate mothers come up to ask me where I bought this top, I knew it was the winner and worthy to be shared :). I simply love it, probably because of the little extra work that I put into it with the embroidered back.

It is just so pretty and feminine, yet completely wearable and comfortable at the same time!

I have discovered a new fascination with embroidery lately, and am loving adding these little personalized touches to my outfits. I feel like they are that little extra something that tells the wearer that this outfit was made with love…

With a fabric like damask, I didn’t need any additional embroidery pattern, just followed along with the fabric lines.

I even got to add my latest favorite fashion accessory, braids, with the tie around the neck! Overall I feel like this shirt is a total success, one we will get tons of use out of.

Now if we can just get the weather to warm up a tad bit more, we would be in business! Lol.

Happy Sewing everyone!

    So cute…love that spring green color and the length of the sleeves too! The more I see your stuff, the more tempted I am to go borrow my mom’s sewing machine!

    This came our beautiful :) The embroidery adds so much to it. I am sure you could buy something like this in a little boutique and it would be quite expensive :)

    Such an innovative idea! I have never seen anything like it! It’s simple perfection. It almost reminds me of a combination of quilting and embroidery. Great job!

    I’m wondering Would it be hard to make this for a smaller child? 7-9 months? I love the top but my little girl wont make her entrance into the world until Sept. So I’m thinking next summer. Thoughts?

    I used this idea to make something similar for my son, and it turned out it’s a bit difficult to put on. The head goes in ok, but the hands are a bit difficult, though when it’s on it’s no too tight.
