    This is so pretty! I love it!
    Does she have hair? How about a pretty satin ribbon in her hair? And I wonder about on shoes? I rather love the dress plain, but that is just me!

    Oh this is beautiful. I could see my little girl in something like this, except not white! Fortunately I know that ruffled fabric comes in a range of dirt-hiding colors!

    Gorgeous! I love the idea of the ribbon. I would use a super pale pink :). Are you planning on making a matching hat out of the ruffle fabric? You know, because you have so much free time, lol!

    I think a small ribbon with long tails at the center of the neckline would be a perfect finishing touch! I love the dress.

    Oh Wow! This is so sweet, yet simple. Absolutely love the ruffles, I wish my teenager was a little girl again so I could dress her up in dresses like this. I think she would have a fit now if I tried LOL!

    This is BEAUTIFUL! I wish I would have seen this before I blessed my little girl…almost two years ago. :) Maybe the next one. Beautiful work, as always! Thanks for sharing!

    What an exciting time. I always loved getting clothes ready for baby and opening the dresser drawer now and then just to take inventory before baby was born. Distant memories. :-) What a beautiful dress! Lovely work!

    That dress is stunning. I love the simplicity of the white but the ruffles make it so much more. Great job!!

    This dress is adorable! I’ve been working on a similar project (in my head) and am wondering how exactly you did the neckline. It’s too cute.

    I am looking at making a baptism dress for my daughter and niece and love the looks of this. Obviously I will have to make it larger. I am wondering how you did the neckline so that the ruffle hangs over?

    LJLC – when I cut out the dress, I just made sure to position the pattern piece at the bottom of one ruffle, and when I sewed I made sure to keep the ruffle free from the stitches. Hope that helps!

    Not sure you still read the comments on older posts, but I had a question (possibly a stupid one). If I wanted to make this without the sleeves, could I just leave them off and finish the edge? I was thinking baby girl would stay a little cooler since it’s summer time now. Love your blog and so appreciate the free patterns!

    Hi Jenny! Yep, I still see comments on older posts :). Since it’s a peasant style dress, I’m not sure how great it would work to leave the sleeves off – you may need to make the armholes a bit smaller so they don’t gape, if that makes sense.

    Did you ever post pics of your sweet girl in this dress. I am doing portraits of my kids on Saturday and bought ruffle fabric with the plan to make a dress for my baby. I just can’t decide how I want the dress to look. The peasant style seems simple and cute for pictures, but I was trying to see it before I make it.

    Love this. I’m buying the fabric and my mother-in-law is going to sew this for our little girls blessing dress! Can you tell me if you used mini ruffle fabric? Rufflefabric.com currently only has a white 2in ruffle fabric available. Just want to be sure I order the right size. Thanks for the lovely pattern!
