Ellie and Mac I Love the 90s Tunics PDF Sewing Pattern Review

It's Wacky Wednesday at Ellie and Mac!! Every Wednesday Ellie and Mac marks a select number of patterns down to only $1 for one day only. This week the "I Love the 90s" Patterns for Girls and for Women is part of the sale! 

I made two of the girls' version of the pattern - one for my oldest daughter and one for the baby. My oldest daughter wanted hers to be tunic length. The pattern comes in a dress length so I removed 5 inches of length from hers to get the length she wanted. I made a size 10 and made no other adjustments. 

The baby doll look on this pattern is absolutely adorable. Also, this was really a quick sewing project since the bodice is lined. The back has two options: one that dips down to make it lower in the back or one that curves a bit upwards to make the back even with the front.

I used rayon spandex on hers and did the lower dip in the back. She was so sweet to help me try to get photos of the baby in her dress. 

The baby turns one in about a week and still has not started walking. She does not want help standing either. Look at the quick progression of tears when asked to hold hands!! 

On the baby's dress, I used a cotton lycra. I removed 1.5 inches in length to make it easier for her to crawl in. I really like the fit on her! 

Her favorite part of the photo session was getting to walk along a rail by herself. She kept stomping and dancing to the beat in her head. She loved this idea, and it was nice to get a shot of her dress from the front!
