Cross Strap Tunic

What a great weekend we have had. My son graduated from primary school and we have attended a moving (tears, the works) leavers service and prize day. It was a great opportunity to sew new dresses for myself and my daughter.
This is the Ottobre 'Cross Strap' Tunic from 3/2008.

I love how flattering this is on my daughter.

lovely yoke front.

The back is so sweet.

I lengthened it into a dress length

Eliza helped me choose the dress pattern and fabric. Her main requirement...NOT PINK!
I chose a lovely patterned chambray that was given to me by my mother in law, and some left over navy linen/cotton blend that was in my scraps box. It was a cool 20 degrees Celsius so the tee shirt was for a little warmth. The dress looks just as sweet without the tee.


  1. What a sweet, but grown up look! I'm telling you I need to find some Ottobre magazines.

    1. I cannot think of better patterns for Tweens and teens. The only thing is you have to like tracing!
