An Ania for Anita

There is a new tunic for girls in town, her name is Ania and she is brought to us by Olga the mastermind behind coffee + thread.

I got to be in on the testing process and it was awesome.  I don’t know where my luck is coming from these days but I hope it stays!

I made three Ania Tunics during testing, here is the first one.

Anita LOVES the bows on the pockets and now she wants bows on everything!  Is that a good thing or a bad thing, I can’t quite decide.  At least on this tunic it’s a good thing!


I made her a size 5 and the fit is very good.  The fabric is some quilting cotton I bought last year at my local fabric store.


The pattern comes with options for short or long sleeves, it can be made in woven AND knit which is a great option I think and it comes in sizes from 9-12 months to 12 years.


I’m going to do separate blog posts for the Ania Tunics I made because they are all so cute and I want them to shine on their own.  So I’ll be posting here for three days in a row now, hope you come back and check it out.



See you again tomorrow!!

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört

  1. I’m with Anita, bows on everything! I love things for little girls that are feminine, but not fussy. This is perfect. I’m putting it on the list for my two year old, as if I didn’t already have a million things to sew for her!
