Sewing A Peasant Dress. I’ve had several requests for an explanation of how the peasant dress underneath the apron dress and tab-front dress is made.
Honestly, it's so dead easy I’m almost embarrassed to tell you how to do it. (But I will anyway:) Here goes: The green dress was made from one yard of fabric. The red gingham dress, 1 1/2. My daughter is 36" from shoulder to ankle. Iron your fabric and straighten the cut ends. To cut out the dress: Decide on the depth of the ruffle, then add ½” for a narrow hem and enough for a seam allowance at the top. Decide how long you want the sleeves to be. What you have left will become the front and back of your dress. To construct the dress: Join the ruffle together to make one continuous strip. Turn under ¼” twice on top and bottom of the large block (dress) and small block (sleeves) and hem.

The perfect dress is hard to come by. I like my dresses to be cheap, and long enough. (I’m not a fan of super short dresses!)
