Pattern Review: Oliver + S Pinwheel Tunic
As soon as I laid eyes on the gorgeous Pinwheel Tunic by Oliver + S, I knew I had to make it! There are so many things I love about this pattern: the flounce, the bias binding finishing, the keyhole back tied up with a bow - it is an ideal pattern for little girls who like to actively play, but still appreciate the girly details. And that, in my mind, makes for a perfect child's pattern: it allows the wearer to feel good in their clothes, without compromising on comfort, wearability or constrict them in any way.
I made this up in a size 10, which is a wee bit big for the Tyger at the moment, but since we were heading into the end of summer, I figured I'd make it with next summer in mind. She loves it - and who wouldn't fall for a sweet cherry-on-pink motif?
Check it out more over on Handmaker's Factory - I think it might now be time for a cup of tea and some knitting with the Tyger. I love school holidays!
