Even though I had a million other things to do, when I came across this soft pink floral cotton fabric in my stash I was inspired, and found myself cutting out a simple peasant dress. I didn't fight it because:
- Peasant dresses are fast and easy. I've made several before.
- She isn't quite 5 and already well into a size 8. Everything is getting small.
- We're flying for summer vacation so we need dresses that pack flat.
- There's a floral link-up party on Project: Run & Play this month!
But why make one when I can make TWO?? I had just enough fabric to make a tiny peasant dress for Snowflake (the skirt is pieced, and a bit shorter than I would like). Their first matching outfits!
I up-sized the free 0-3 month pattern I found on Sew Much Ado to something closer to 3-6 month. And I tried the scalloped edging trick I found there. Subtle, but super cute. And now I want to buy all the rick-rack and do this on everything! Sometimes it's the little things that really make a project special.
