Last week, Amy, the designer behind Peek-a-Boo Patterns, put out a tester call to test out the revised Perfect Peasant Dress pattern. She added long sleeves! Which I love 🙂 Especially now that it’s starting to get pretty cold. (The last couple of days it’s been hovering around 5 C). I was lucky and got to test the 3-6 month size.
Baby V has a new dress!
The bright colours don’t quite go with the season, oh well, but she can make anything look cute! I wanted to use some of the fabric in my stash and these were the only really coordinating ones I had enough of.
The dress is great, really. It’s so easy to get on and off with elastic at the neckline and at the waist. The sash is removable but can be tacked on if you prefer. She also gives directions to make the flower on the dress. I put mine on a clip so that it can be removable (easier for washing) and so that it can be worn as a hairclip. …Not that she has enough hair for that, but big sis does!
Look Ma, I’m sitting up! (Ha! Not really, hubby is supporting her under the dress, she’s not quite 3 months old in these pictures).
This is a fairly easy pattern to do. The trickiest part of this was top stitching the elastic casing on the sleeves. But that’s really only because the sleeves are so tiny in this size. And it doesn’t take that long to do up either, if I could have had uninterrupted time to work on it, it probably would have taken me about 3 hours from start to finish. If you’ve already purchased the short sleeve version of this dress, you can get the update for free. The dress pattern can be found here.
