Candy Kaleidoscope

After making the free pleated square tunic from Shwin & Shwin three times (from a pillowcase, a sheet, and as a dress) I figured it was time to buy the full pattern - the McKenzie Tunic (although Cupcake is now in the largest size!).  And when I won this amazing fabric from a giveaway on Kwiltz by Stephanie I knew I wanted to make another.  Thankfully I had exactly enough.  

The print reminded me of something that Fancy Nancy would wear, so why not go over the top and add lots of trim?  Two-toned pink around the arms, royal purple between fabrics, and blue rickrack along the edges. I've got quite a lot of ribbon, I really should use it more often!
