Mix and match tunic with integrated little skirt


An indispensable and flexible pattern.

A tunic, dress or little top all in one.

The original version comprises a tunic with integrated little skirt.

One garment that makes a whole outfit.

The tunic is easy to make with its buttoned shoulders.

Alternatively the buttons can be replaced by snaps.

The back hem is overlapping (a little nod to Cosy)

The little skirt is attached and stitched in with the ’flap’ at the tunic’s hem.

Alternatively you could choose to sew it separately.

The sides of the tunic are open at the hem.


Fabrics used for this Chatouilleuse:

Mustard jacquard wool: Ilona store

Flannel Nani Iro


A line on the pattern allows you to also make a version without the bottom part.

The hem edge can then be trimmed with wide lace ribbon.

The facing is visible on this version.

Chatouilleuse is worn here with Joyeux shorts (free pattern available here) made in wool.

Thick tights complete this winter outfit.
