Another dress pattern from my stash that I seem to make again and again. It’s a simple loose fitting peasant style dress that again can be done in a variety of ways. Last year, I kept it really simple and did not add any embellishments at all. This year, I got a wee bit more ambitious and added the large flower to the bodice, one on each side of the capris as well as the 2nd ruffle. You will notice a theme with all Tasha’s dresses this year, most of them, if not all of them have a coordinating pair of ruffle capris. She’s in grade 1 now and loves to run, jump, cartwheel and the like on the playground. The last thing I want is her showing her undies off to everyone. The capris help prevent that. Each pair that I’ve made I’ve done so with lightweight cotton, so she won’t be hot in a dress + capris.
I have to admit, I do so love the flowers. I did not even have to sew them! I used my handy dandy glue gun. LOL. They are not sewn on either, I glued them to pins. I knew after multiple washings that they would start to look bad. This way they can be removed after each wear and then pinned back on and they will keep their “fresh” look. Tasha loves this oufit, I think mostly because of the flowers. Have I mentioned how much she loves flowers?? The pattern is by Juvie Moon, which can be purchased from her shop on Etsy. The fabric is Michael Miller’s TA Dot in Red (reminds me of Minnie Mouse) and Plain Jane Flowers – Turquoise.
