My girls love flannel. A lot.
They have flannel blankets, flannel sheets, and flannel pajamas. In fact Ruth (my 3 year old) even has her own little trunk full of flannel…pink cuts of flannel fabric pieces.
And so I was thinking there has to be a way to let my girls wear the kind of fabric that they love….which is perfect to keep them toasty warm during the winter…but not have them look like they are wearing pajamas. So I tried a few things and I think I found my favorite way:
By pairing some soft flannels with crisp cottons I’ve been making these tunics that my girls love.
My favorite combinations are like the one here in the photographs….soft, solid colored flannels for the arms and body of the tunics which keeps the girls warm and cozy…and then a nice crisp peter pan collar made from fun patterned quilting cottons.
The girls like how comfortable these tops are with their leggings and I like how cute they are.
Plus they are really easy to make with this super simple closure in the back.
I foresee a lot more of these tops in my girls future.
*Keep an eye out for more on this pattern in the future….
