Carmen’s Tunics for the twins!

posted in: Babies & Kids, Sewing | 3

I have to say I fell in love with this pattern!  It is a .pdf pattern that I bought on Etsy from LilleSkapet… Carmen’s Tunic.  Not only was it reasonably priced but it went together very easy.  The only thing I did different is that the author mentioned that testers with slim little girls found the neckline a little big, so I used the front & back pieces of the size 4 which is what my girls are wearing & then I used the neck pieces, arm & bottom cuffs from the size 3.  The fabric is a Flap Happy Jungle Floral & Flap Happy Pink Zebra which are a 95% cotton 5% spandex blend heavy jersey knit fabric from

I think I only spent 1 hour total cutting out & sewing these tops?  The twins LOVE them & they fit their sassy attitudes, that’s for sure!  We ran a few errands today and everyone kept commenting on how cute they were.



There’s nothing quite like your twin sister!!!

    Thank you SO much for mentioning changing the neck for the skinny minny’s in our lives. I made a 5 and knew right away when I tried it on my DD that I would have to go down for the neck opening. I’m just glad I found something that confirmed it lol!
