Belle Peasant Dress

My husband came home from work one afternoon and said that I should make our daughter a Belle peasant dress. I am not entirely sure where his idea came from, but it is a simple enough dress so I went for it.

I made the dress in three pieces so that we could potentially use the shirt and the dress separately and my efforts would not be all for a dress she would only wear a few times.



I used pieces from different patterns and for some of it I had to make my own pattern. The sleeves were a bit fuller than I intended, but the shirt is still great to wear with other skirts. If we didn’t travel for a living I would make many more of my own patterns and sell children’s clothes. It is fun and I would love to be a financial contributor to our home without leaving it :)

What is or was your child’s favorite character?
