Paganoonoo Kendra Top or Tunic, children's garment.
Upcycle* 2 - 3 children's dress shirts (instead of flat fold fabric) into a unique and beautiful customized Kendra Top / Tunic. The silhouette is that of a classic child's garment. The overall effect is classic/playful depending on the colors and patterns chosen. It is self-adjusting to the child's body shape and height so all sizes are included. Upcycling our existing clothes into new fashions is good for the planet, and really great on the budget!!
The sewing is straightforward piece assembly, primarily topstitching. All of the tough parts like the collar, collar band, plackets, buttonholes are already sewn on the starting garments, making your job easier!
Features include: • Empire waistline • Pleated lower front • Eye-catching, pleated back details • Contrasting band at waist
Sewers with experience with mixing colors and patterns will fulfill their artistic dreams, but those just learning these skills will find they enjoy the challenge and growth to their creativity. !! Have Fun !! ADDITIONAL BONUS - Includes a 4-page tip sheet on design elements, color selection, fit, garment care, and technical tips.

With upcycling, there is no need to print, cut out and tape together PATTERN PIECES. The starting materials are 3D garments, so instead the "pattern" is instructions and illustrations that define exactly what and where to cut (disassemble) and how to reassemble the pieces. Available in both Hard Copy $22 and Digital $16 versions.
HARD COPY - You are purchasing a set of instructions printed on 8.5" by 11" paper which can be put in a binder for future ease of reference. You'll receive the pattern by U.S. Post.
DIGITIAL (PDF) COPY - You receive a PDF file which you print yourself. Works on a regular home printer with standard paper.
