This is a CarlaC/Jennifer Paganelli collaboration! Two great minds working together for your benefit.

The Sophie Tunic is a cool, classic top for girls sized 6/12 months to 11/12 years. It is simple to sew, and a great way to showcase stunning fabrics. With a range of sleeve and length options, there are design possibilities for all seasons. A stylish tunic can be worn with jeans or leggings for casual fun, or paired with a pretty skirt for a dressier look. A long tunic makes the perfect cover-up for lounging by the pool or walking on the beach.

Three separate sleeve patterns are provided for each size: a short sleeve, a long sleeve, and a cuffed sleeve. The short sleeve has an additional cutting line for cap length. The long and cuffed sleeves have multiple cutting lines to make a range of lengths from ¾ to full. The keyhole neckline is finished with a facing, which can be made from a contrasting fabric and placed on outside of the garment. Sweet ribbon ties or a little button/loop fastener can be added as well.


-Notions - thread, straight pins, fabric marking pencil, ribbon or button (optional)
-Fabric - 1-3 yards, depending on size, style, and options.

*Note: These are downloadable instructions for a tunic top. Pattern pieces are included for the tunic. Since it is a download, you will receive this by email and it will also be located in the "My Library" section of your user account immediately after purchase.

This is the first pattern I have bought and made from "You Can Make This" and it's wonderful!! I am impressed with the clear directions and the finished results are terrific. I have been searching for the "perfect" little girls beach tunic and you did it! Like Sandra Verrell, I am making this for my granddaughter and will be making the Patricia Tunic for her mom.

Another 5 star to Sis Boom! By far one of the easiest patterns to follow. A GREAT beginner pattern for those just beginning to sew, yet still a fantastic pattern for those of us who are a bit above beginners wanting to make a classy outfit. Thank you Sis Boom!!!

Easy to follow and well written. Computer drafted pattern pieces. Very clear. The hardest part is deciding on the fabric.

This tunic is so incredibly versatile. I have the adult version and have made a few. I have two little boys and have used this tunic as a base for at least 3 Halloween costumes (Link from the legend of Zelda, Jareth the Goblin King from Labrynth and Peter Pan). This comes together so quickly. I finished 2 the other night when I got home from work- and that's with the changes needed to make it fit the costume. I love every pattern that Carla puts out.

So cute and easy! I made these as part of a matching mommy/daughter set for my niece and sister-in-law. My niece was so excited to match her mom!

I am a beginner and this was a very easy pattern to follow. I made it a little longer so it's a dress instead of a top. It turned out darling!

I love all the sisboom and CarlaC patterns. Carla really does the best at writing out patterns that are easy to understand and to follow. I have made several of these as beach coverups, using all different types of fabrics. Really is one of my favorites.

I've made several tops from this pattern for my girls. Fantastic, easy to follow directions. Making one for myself from the Patricia pattern right now.

I've already left a testimonial on this top but I wanted to add to it. I took my baby into the sewing store wearing a Sophie tunic I had made. The lady commented on how professional the top looked. I do not consider myself a pro but it made me feel good to get that compliment from someone like her. The authors of this pattern get all the credit cause I certainly couldn't make something look so good without the wonderfully thorough directions and illustrations. Thanks for making me look like a pro!

Once again Carla makes sewing seem easy! This pattern came together beautifully with the great directions provided. I definitely recommend it for a beginner! And just looking at the gorgeous fabrics of Jennifer Paganelli has me excited to make many more variations! This tunic is perfect with jeans, shorts or leggings or as a cover-up for the beach.

CarlaC does it again. This is a wonderful pattern written in true CarlaC fashion. Beginner instructions, with prfessional results. I LOVE how each step is detailed and set out so a beginner can understand. I also like the easy lines/styles can be dolled up for the more experienced sewer. Thanks to Jennifer Paganelli also. I LOVE her fabrics and will be making some of these up in her fabrics also.

Such a wonderful pattern! As with all of CarlaC's patterns everything is super easy and she helps the new sewer to create things they never thought they could make. She also helps a seasoned seamstress to be even better! This pattern is great for all ages! Congratulations to CarlaC and Jennifer Paganelli on a wonderful new pattern. I hope this is the 1st of many more from these 2 talents.

Love it. I usually skip any pattern with sleeves but this one was really cute and just up my ally in style. Try it, if you ever felt intimidated by sleeves don't be with this one, its so easy with the instructions given. If only they all could be this easy. I would be a pro; I am making a 2nd top for my middle daughter today. I love this pattern and see it very useful for a summer wardrobe. pookie

Made this as a shirt and a PJ top. both so cute. Carla makes sewing easy. Thanks for another great pattern.

I love this pattern! It only took me an easy afternoon for the entire project. The directions for the facings and sleeves, which can be tricky, were especially easy to follow. My only word of caution is the sizing. My daughter wears a 7/8 consistently. I made the 7/8 and it was huge on her, so I whipped up the 5/6 and it fit perfectly. I'll definitely make some more using all the variation provided in the pattern. I can't wait to buy my next Jennifer/Carla collaboration.
