Americana Peasant Dress
Here it is! My newest interpretation of the SquigglyTwigs Designs Pretty Peasant pattern!! (For some reason my virus protection won't let me enter her site anymore.)
I am loving the way it turned out! Cailey put it on for the pictures and refused to take it off again! A definite score for me! :)
Now she has something to match Colin's Stars and Stripes Shorts! :)
I really love that pattern. It's just one piece!!! The same piece for the bodice and sleeves! Then you get a walk-through to make it into a tunic, top or dress, long sleeves or short.
With this one, I cut it at a size 10. For the sleeves, I added about 2" to the pattern. Then for the elastic casing, I added 2" of the contrast fabric.
For the dress, I added 2 rows of patchwork squares at the bottom to make it longer. I only had 1 yard of the red, white and blue stars to work with. The blue with white stars was even less! LOL
My 3rd time making this pattern and I am just as pleased with the results as I was the 1st time.
HAVE FUN SEWING!!!!!
