Peasant Girl Dress

I made her a dress from left over linen from this dress. I wanted a cool summer dress for her that have a small, fitted neckline. She’s allergic to sunscreen and overheats easily. So a thin material with a good coverage is in order. I made it snap botton closure on one shoulder & side for easy on and off, and used self bias tape to enclose all the visible seams and french seamed the not visible seams. It is so satisfying making her this quick dress and the snap machine my dad bought me came in very handy.

She’s at an age where she actually enjoys wearing cute stuff and showing her dad how cute she looks. When she wore this dress to show him, he cracked up and called her a little peasant girl and told her to get him some water. I suppose it does look like a Chinese servant dress, especially when she wears it with light pants like this:
