Love this dress. I have other peasant dress patterns that I use often but bought this one to add to my collection because I loved the big bow!

I made the 3T for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter. She wears a 3T in most clothes. It fit perfectly and she looks adorable.

Seems I'm the only one who isn't in love with the pattern. It was super easy to make, very clear instructions. BUT, oh my gosh, it's huge!!!! The 7/8 pattern directions swallows my daughter that normally wears 8/10. Very frustrated with having to resize so much. Probably won't make again, I have other peasant-style dresses that are sized more appropriately.

This pattern was very easy and quick. Directions were clear and easy to follow. Next time I would make the bow a tiny bit smaller than the pattern calls for.

Very easy pattern. could have been complete in about an hour, but my machine doesn't like elastic thread. So I finally used 1/8" elastice in the sleeves. still turned out cute. I was wanting a dress for the 3-6 months and the length turned out to be a longer top. Not quite long enough for a dress in that size.
