So I’ve been sewing again. More spring dresses and this time I added some pastel ruffle fabric! As you can see above, she was much more interested in Toby than having her photo taken. I’m not sure I blame her!
I’ve used this peasant pocket dress pattern many times. Recently I shared the Easter dresses I made as well as my first dress from this pattern. I decided to switch things up and add a layer of ruffle fabric to the dress. I purchased several yards of this ruffle fabric from Pick Your Plum almost a year ago. When it arrived, it was much more sheer than the ruffle fabrics I’ve used before, and so I boxed it away until I could think of what I wanted to do with it. It worked perfectly for this project since there is a lining underneath. I sewed it to the front and back pieces before sewing the front and back to each other. The trickiest part was making sure it all laid flat and matched up.
She loves her little ruffle dress and now I know what to make with the rest of my ruffle fabric! Pretty little overlays!
I had so much fun working with this darling fabric that I made her a little skirt to wear to dance class too. Just a simple elastic waistband skirt. She loves it and I think I might have enough fabric leftover to make one for myself too 😉
