    This was my first sewing project using PDF patterns and it was so easy with a beautifull result that I buy almost all of them! My girl loves this dress and it is by far her favorite dress pattern. Thank You Love Notions 🙂

    Love, Love, Love this pattern. Best part is that I am able to matching Mummy/Daughter sets for me and my daughter as I am a size 12-14. Thanks for a quick sew and great easy to follow tutorial x

    The Trendy Tunic was the very first Love Notions pattern that I ever bought. I was still a relatively new knits sewer and I was impressed how easy this pattern was to put together. If you are at all worried about the pocket construction there is a video on the blog to help you out. The instructions are very clear and you don’t need the video but it’s nice bonus to have it the first time you put it together.
    My kids love the pockets in this tunic. They are really deep and great for all those treasures that littles tote around.

    This pattern works up so wonderfully. My daughter loves the pockets and I love it’s simplicity. I feel like it’s a more grown up version of the Everyday Playdress. Sews up super cute in coordinating fabrics and is comfortable for my daughter to play in.

    This turned out great. My daughter loves it. It was easy to put together and a fun way to use my new coverstitch machine. Pairs perfectly with leggings.

    Not your run-of-the-mill pattern. With the Trendy Tunic, you get a unique garment that is comfortable to wear and has pockets! Instructions are just what you expect with Love Notions patterns – clear, concise and with extra help available in the form of a video tutorial. Another excellent pattern!
