a sweet friend of mine had her first baby last week, and i just had to sew up some cute clothes for her. i wanted something practical and easy to wear, but it had to be super cute too! i thought i might make some tunics and leggings, and i remembered these awesome tumble tees and fancy pants leggings that Christie of a lemon squeezy home made. and since baby clothes don't get much cuter than that, why reinvent the wheel?
armed with some fabulous knits, i set out to make some tiny tumble tee tunics for baby Ella. the tumble tee pattern size range is 6 months through ten years, so i graded it down to a tunic-length tumble tee to fit babies up to 3 months (approx 8-11 pounds).
because it's fun to share, i've put together the 3m tumble tee as a free pdf pattern:
