Ruffle Peasant Dress for Mady

I had originally planned to make Mady a whole bunch of pillow case dresses. In my mind they would be the simplest and easiest style to go with for my pretty new-to-sewing self. But then we ran into the problem of them being VERY summery and I wanted to make something she could wear right now (I'm impatient like that).

So I turned to my friend Google. Who happened to bring me to one of my favourite blogs, TaDa Creations, and a tutorial that she did for a ruffled peasant dress.

I don't know how I missed it when she first posted it (though maybe I started following her right after?). Anyway, I knew this was the dress for me.

I'm pretty proud since it meant I had to adjust a pattern a bit and went a bit beyond my normal realm of sewing (I had to put in sleeves!). But I love the end result.

I love it so much, I might even have to make a few more. :) Mady, of course, loves it too.
Thanks Angel for the tutorial. And seriously, you have to go look at the clothes she makes. Totally adorable!


  1. Oh, this is just THE cutest thing ever! And your daughter is a doll. Love your fabric choices. I hope you are hooked now! :)

  2. Awesome job, Mel! And great modelling, Mady!

  3. It is so cute- I'm impressed! Whatever I sew ends up in scary shreds hahaha

  4. The ruffle down the front is so cute! ANd I LOVE peasant dresses...they are still one of my favorite things to make!


The fact that you take the time to leave me comments makes my day! Thanks for taking the time. I read every single one.
