New Shirred Peasant dress

I finished a new dress for my daughter out of the knits I bought a few weeks ago from Fabric.com. I am so pleased how this dress came out!
The dress is a simple peasant dress style with a shirred bodice. (Get the full tutorial and free pattern in sizes 12 month to 8 here.) This dress is really a quick and easy sew. You can omit the shirring if desired and if you use a knit fabric, there will be no hemming necessary!
She was just not in the mood to take pictures after coming home from our playdate, I should have tried before we left the house as she was so happy it was a “play-date day!”

I love the fabric! great job.
What a beauty…and the dress is fantastic too! I will be trying this for my 6 year old. Thank you for the idea!
That's adorable! I have wanted to try shirring but have been too intimidated…it's the elastic thread…I need to get over it. Your dress turned out beautifully!
