  1. That’s very sweet! And what a lovely little model. :-)

  2. so cute! love all the variations!!! happy sales to you!

  3. THis dress is adorable. You styled it so beautifully too. The scalloped bottom is my fave!

  4. Love those scalloped edges!

  5. LOVED sewing with this pattern! Sharing on my blog this coming week! :)

  6. Do you have an Etsy (or other online) shop? I’d like to look around if you do!

  7. Oh my goodness, that red and turquoise! So cute, Abby!

  8. I am so about to purchase this! I have been making your peasant dress that was a free tutorial for 0 -3 m and now I want to make more in bigger sizes! I love the pattern. I have a question….do you think I could use cotton flannel fabric and do you have a variation for lengthening the sleeves and making it long sleeved ?

    Thank you!

  9. Capturing – I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying the free pattern! I think cotton flannel would be a fantastic idea. I’ve actually been wanting to use the pattern to make some nightgowns out of flannel. The pattern itself only has short sleeved options, but to make it long sleeved you woudl just add the length you need to the pattern piece – if you check out our facebook page someone just posted a pic of the dress they made with long sleeves :).

  10. Oh my goodness! I can just see my cute little granddaughter wearing this little dress for her 1st birthday!!! Already have the fabric picked out!

  11. Why does this say it’s a free pattern until you try to download it?

  12. Anon – I think you may be thinking of the 0-3m peasant dress pattern that I have offered for free on this blog, the Polly Peasant Dress & Blouse Pattern that is for sale on this post is a for-purchase pattern. The free pattern can be found here: http://www.sew-much-ado.com/2012/01/infant-peasant-dress-free-pattern-and.html

    Hope that helps!

  13. Have you noticed that the pattern runs a little wide? I made a 4t today, and it looked huge width wide, but the length was perfect.


  14. Kayla – the style is meant to be fairly full around, but if your daughter is on the slim side, you can always cut out a size three for the width and size 4 for the length. The orange bicycle dress pictured above is a size four on a barely four year old (that fits the measurements for a size four), so it can give you an idea of what it should look like when worn. Hope that helps!

  15. I’ve been making so many of the infant dresses with the free pattern that I figured I should start making some for when my little girl is older so I finally bought this pattern with larger sizes! Thanks for fun and easy idea! I’ve been really enjoying this :)

  16. I want to make this dress for my LO’s first birthday. I was wondering if it were possible to gather it around the bust to give it different look? That would also help with the pattern being wide. Would I need to out a larger top section, then gather it and add regular sized bottom section? Her birthday is Saturday.

  17. Mariel – I would just add a casing to the inside under the bust after the front and back pieces are sewn together, and thread elastic through the casing. You’ll end up with gathers on the bust and skirt that way :).

  18. Sarah@SisterGiggles says:

    I have a directional print that I want to use, but I would have to make the folds perpendicular to the selvedge instead of parallel. Will it still look right?

  19. Sarah – If your fabric is 100% cotton, you should be just fine to cut the pattern out on cross-grain and not have any problems :).

  20. Oh my goodness. This dress is so cute. I love how versatile it is that it can be worn as a tunic top as the child gets older! I just ordered some new fabric with the plan of making my daughter a dress for when she starts kindergarten in the fall. I had something like this pictured in my head. I just pinned it so that I can come back and buy it when the fabric arrives.

    Thank you!


  21. New follower! Found you through ‘Why Not Sew’…love this pattern and ‘sew’ glad you offer the varied sizes!

  22. i really love her work. very talented

  23. This is one of the things that I sewed first. Made three for my daughter so far and she’s loved them all.

  24. Does this pattern include a long sleeve option?

    • The pattern includes a short sleeve option only, but you can always just add length to the pattern pieces to get whatever desired sleeve length you’d like. Hope that helps!

  25. Great goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you are just too fantastic.
    I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you are saying
    and the wway in which you say it. You make it entertaining and

  26. Today, I wwent to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell aand ave it to myy 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to hher ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinchwd her ear.

    off topic but I had to tell someone!
