Summer dress - peasant style

Summer is here and I have whipped up some dresses for my little girl. I do not have much experience in dress making, so I thought I would keep it simple to start with. The peasant dress came to mind.

I used a dress that my daughter already had, found the measurements and cut accordingly. Based on some tips found online, I used elastics on the sleeves and around the neck and added a little extra at the hem line. A finishing touch: a little blue bow to match the little flowers on the dress fabric.


For some reason finger expression was important for this photo shoot...

Have a lovely day!
