My husband calls this our daughter's "Snow White" dress, because the cut and colors remind him of the dress in the Disney film.

I used the Molly Peasant Dress PDF pattern/tutorial from Sis Boo, and the fabrics are all reproduction 1930's prints: one red and two blue. I made the sash out of wide grosgrain ribbon which I tacked on the front and trimmed with a yo yo made from the sleeve fabric on which I stacked a white and then a red flower-shaped button.

The pattern/tute was simple to follow, and the results were fantastic. It only took me about an evening and a half to make and the girl adores it so much that I am probably going to make a couple more for her out of different fabrics. Then, in the fall, I will make some with longer skirts and sleeves....I'll probably even make her some in flannel for nightgowns.

It was really fun to sew and I had a great time digging through the stash to find great fabrics to combine for the best effect.

It is a very easy pattern to sew, and the directions are very, very clear. I have the adult version as well; I need to make myself a summer top to see how it looks on me before I decide to try making a dress.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Well, your husband is certainly right about the Snow White bit. It's a lovely dress, and I'm completely in lust with the fabrics - where did you get them, if you don't mind?
