Ottobre Design 4/2013 Princess Castle

Soon after we moved in I finished this tunic for Eleanor.  It is the Princess Castle from 4/2013 issue of Ottobre.  The fabric is a little wild for me, but it was clearance and I knew Eleanor would love it.  It seams as though I was right, because she is always asking to wear her smiley dress.

My only complaint is that once again, I should have made it skinnier to fit her better.

 This pattern has some really fun details like the circle pockets and cross over bodice.  There are also dress and long sleeve options.

Eleanor is becoming such a big girl.  Where did my baby go?


  1. I had the same problem with that tunic. Ended up making it one size wide and the next size up long. This is one is darling.

  2. I agree with Eleanor, I love that fabric too! :-)
    The overall tunic pattern is really cute and the detail of the round pockets is great!


Thank you so much for commenting! I read every one (including those ridiculous spam ones) and love hearing what you think!
