Making these peasant dresses was my first time using a pattern from Create Kids Couture. I've used the Marilyn's Slim Fit Peasant Dress, available as a free download from Fabric.com.
This little dress is SO quick and easy to sew!!! The pattern gives clear, detailed, step by step instructions, with lots of photos included. If you are new to sewing, this would be a good pattern. The hardest part of the dress is the ruffle. If you found the ruffle too difficult, the dress could be lengthened and finished with a hem, instead.
These little dresses will be joining the previous dresses for the Hopeful Threads sew-along to support Dress A Girl Around the World.
Mary, from Ms. Redo, and her daughter, have sewn some beautiful, little pillowcase dresses in support of Dress A Girl Around the World. Head on over and have a look, here and here.
