Pretty Peasant Dresses

Are you familiar with the blog Sew Much Ado?  If not, you should be!!!  I have never bought one of her patterns before, but I have used several of her tutorials.  The tutorials are so fantastic, the quality of her patterns must be amazing.

I used her Infant Peasant Dress tutorial to make a few little dresses for the twins.  I love the simple design and the use of elastic.  It's going to make it ssssooooo easy to put these on and take them off!

I believe I ordered this material from Pick Your Plum when it was one of their daily deals.  It's one of those great sites that posts a new deal everyday.  It's often baker's twine, basic wardrobe pieces, blank jewelry or crafts.  When I decided to make these dresses and was digging through my material stash, these prints seemed perfect.  Adorable, but soft.  Something that won't over-power two little girls.

BTW - I'm not getting paid by Sew Much Ado or Pick Your Plum.  I just want to share two sites with you I love!


  1. I love these dresses! You are so sweet, thanks for the kind words :). And I love the fabric you used - wish I would have seen that deal and got some for myself!

  2. These are the cutest, most adorable dresses. You did a wonderful job. I have a link party called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Blog Hop and would love to have you share this with everyone. It runs from Wednesday through midnight Sunday. Here is the link to the party.
