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 🙂
