I'm slowly starting to sew for Sarah's fall/winter wardrobe. Almost all of her clothes from last seasons are too small for her now. Of course, I will still buy some of her outfits, but handmade is always more fun. This peasant dress is a start.
I sewed this dress based on this pattern from Scattered Thoughts of A Crafty Mom. I made a slit at the back center and added bias tape to finish it. Instead of elastic, I gathered the neckline, and sewed bias binding on it, extending the binding for several inches on each side as ties. This is an easy one, a great project for a beginner.
The next day after I finished the dress, we went on a trip to pick up some apples! It was quite a drive, about an hour and thirty minutes away from our house, but it was fun!
