One of the reasons a basic peasant dress pattern is so great, (other than the fact it is so easy to make) is there are just SO MANY different ways to change up the look of a simple peasant dress.
From various lengths to fabric choices, to different sleeve options and hem choices (and don’t even get me started on all the ways you can embellish this dress for a little extra pizzazz, lol!)
This printable pdf pattern includes a bodice and 2 sleeve shapes (short and long.) It is available in 5 different sizes: 12 to 18 months, 2t/3t, 4/6, 7/8 and 9/10. (larger sizes coming soon.)
In order to save you money on your ink and paper, I have chosen to make only the bodice and sleeves printable and provide measurements and instructions for you to add the skirt shape to the bodice. (I do encourage you to use your own child’s measurements when possible since children’s body shapes and heights can be very different from a standard chart.)
(*update: this pattern now has a long sleeve option! See the long sleeve dress I made here.)
For the version I am showcasing today, I decided to keep the dress simple and let the fabric make the statement for our fall pumpkin photos. I planned on making a pair of brown knit ruffle leggings to go with this dress, so I made the length a bit shorter (really more of a tunic top) to complement the leggings.
