A few weeks ago, while I was in-between projects, I got the urge to sew. I downloaded a very cute pattern for a girl's peasant dress -- Sis Boom's Molly Peasant Dress.
I had some fabric that I'd gotten on sale (from Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush collection).
The pattern was easy to follow, and there were only a few pieces to cut out and work with.
The only modification I made was to add a ruffle to the bottom in the same fabric I used for the sleeves. For some reason, the dress seemed to need the ruffle to balance out the proportions. (I just cut a rectangle that was twice as long as the circumference of the skirt, basted it on to get the ruffles right, and sewed it.)
Best of all, the dress fits (although next time I will go up a size) and looks adorable.
P.S. Still plenty of time to use the coupon code TOOHOT for 15% off orders of $25 or more (not including shipping) at Black Bunny Fibers....
