Pastel Peasant Dress


Pastel Peasant Dress

I really like peasant dresses!  They are pretty easy to make and are so versatile!  All you need are 2-3 complimentary colors and/or patterns, and a variety of dresses can be created, in different styles.  (You can see the first peasant dress I made here.)

This dress I made as a birthday present for my very good friend Hannah, who was also my music teacher before we moved.  Her favorite colors are yellow, green and blue, so I used the pastels I had in all those colors.

There’s the yellow chemise with gathered neck and sleeves, the blue skirt (a half-circle this time), and the green felt vest, laced up in back.  Also worn are a yellow flowered apron and a headband, made of a piece of pink trim.

This dress I made as a Christmas gift for my second-youngest sister (also the one I made the 40’s style dress for).  The dress is similar to the Hobbit dress I made. As my sister’s favorite color is yellow, that’s what I made the theme 🙂  There’s a shirt/chemise of a pastel yellow, gathered at the neck and elbows with embroidery thread.  The skirt is a patterned, straight skirt, gathered at the waist with a drawstring.  The vest is the from Hobbit vest pattern, only in yellow felt.

The doll came from a different dollar store than where I usually get dolls, hence those funny pink shoes that don’t match at all 🙂

This is the second outift Buttercup wears in the movie “The Princess Bride.”  It’s worn as she says goodbye to Westley.  True, not a very well known one, but I really liked it.  The chemise is 3/4 sleeved and the dark blue jumper looks like a vest because of the apron worn over it.

When we first watched “The Princess Bride”, I really enjoyed it.  Only recently did I think of starting to make the costumes.

This is the first dress Buttercup wears in the movie. It consists of the blue pullover shift and light brown jumper, which is fully lined.

This Eowyn dress is a really pretty one featured in “The Return of the King.” It is shown in 1 long shot like this; then the brown skirt is worn with it when Eowyn wears the outfit in the Rohan camp.

This outfit is the first Eowyn dress I made.  The white chemise and skirt were made from a T-shirt and the vest and corset from brown felt, embellished with gold glitter paint.  If I’d had brown material I would’ve made the camp skirt, but I didn’t, so I couldn’t  😦
