I've been looking at all these cute little peasant dresses on Etsy and other online children's boutique type stores. They are pricey especially if you buy one with designer like fabric. Most of them I priced were around $40-45! Too much for this gal!
So I did an online search and found a freebie pattern online!
Woo-hoo...got to love free!
And then I found this cute fabric (just what I had in mind) at Wally World of all places! I already had the fabric for the sleeves and ruffle in my stash.
Total cost of dress...$3.50! I only needed about half a yard and a small amount of 1/4 wide elastic.
And I have enough over to make little Calista a dress too!
And here's my tip: If you can sew at all, you can make a basic little dress like this. No zippers, or buttonholes to contend with. And by doing an online search, you can usually find some free patterns to boot! This one was just the directions plus a little pattern for the sleeve, easy peasy!
I found the boots at Wally World too...I love how they look on her! It was warm enough today to go outside without tights. I am looking for a little brown pair for her as our weather is a changing! We were 90 on Tuesday and today only about 70. And the next few days we will only climb into the upper 60's. Autumn is arriving around these parts.... how about around your neck of the woods?
