“Very fun and easy to make!”

Your little girl is going to LOVE this bubble tank! So comfy to wear and so simple to make. Let your inner artist emerge as you embellish the bodice with funky scrunchy roll-ey ruffles...not your typical ruffle treatment but you will learn a whole new way to add some life to a simple garment. This tunic length top has fun knotty ties at the shoulders and a great bubble skirt bottom. Pair this one up with some leggings, skinny jeans or the Rings of Ruffles pants and you've got a knock out look that will make your sweetie the cutest kiddo on the block.

Sizes 12 months - 7 years

No serger is needed! Directions are given for sewing on a regular sewing machine. This one is also fully lined so need to worry about seam finishing.

Also, in typical LILYGIGGLE fashion, I created the "Poppy Bubble Tank" Tunic out of some XL women's t-shirts! You know how much I like to repurpose, but now all of my recycled t-shirt patterns also give layouts, yardages and instructions if you prefer to use fabric off of the bolt.

All LilyGiggle patterns are computer drafted and are color coded to make them easy to put together and to keep sizes accurate. Each PDF also includes a very detailed tutorial with lots of color photographs and diagrams demonstrating each step of creating the design. The tutorials are written with terminology explained so you'll know what it means to say things such as "right sides together". My hope is to create PDFs that will take away the frustration of using a traditional big box store pattern and put the fun back into sewing.
