TUTORIAL- How to make a peasant dress

I enjoy sewing children's clothes and hope someone can learn from this sewing "tutorial" :-)

Detail of the top of the dress

The two different materials I used.
I liked the contrasting colors.


The top of the gathered skirt (this will be sewn to the bodice/top of the dress)

The peasant bodice with elastic in the neck and sleeves.
Elastic creates such pretty, feminine, gathers :-)

before putting the elastic in.

The skirt after I cut off the original waistband.
(This was a thrift store bargain I found. It is a linen woman's skirt)
