I found this corduory on clearance at JoAnn's. . .At the store it told me it wanted to be pants, but when we got  home I managed to convince it otherwise.  Smiley  I had seen Shakespear's adorable corduroy peasant top(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=219520.0), and my daughter was in desperate need of some new winter dresses--thus was born the corduroy peasant dress. 

I happened to have a pattern for a peasant top, so I used that and just attached a basic tiered skirt.  Instead of shirring like Shakespear used, I did elastic casing around the neck and sleeves.  I did do some shirring around the waist afterward though, and I'm really pleased with the difference that made. Smiley  Though really it's the bedhead and the plastic dress-up shoes that really MAKE the outfit.



(She was actually happier with the dress than she lets on these pics--just miffed that I was interrupting her while she was trying to read.)

very pretty!!!! i love it!  and your daughters hair is sooo pretty!! my DDs hair is uhm.. to say the least - gross. LOL  It never feels soft, and the back is all curly so it always looks all ratted up, even after brushing it.  She has straight hair in the front and it just started being like this about 2 years ago, she's 5 years old now.

Anyways, sorry to ramble like that.. but love the dress, I may have to copy it Cheesy
