There is something really satisfying about a quick, easy sew. And it feels even better when your work is appreciated. Today Sarah is showing off her Daisy Dress from My Childhood Treasures, a dropwaist peasant dress with pockets. Though the design is simple and the time requirement is little, the payoff (in giggles and grins) is great!
Hello there! This is Sarah and I am here today with a review of the Daisy Dress by My Childhood Treasures. I have to confess that I Iove a cute peasant dress; they are classic and versatile, plus I can whip one up in short order in case of a wardrobe emergency (forgotten theme day at school, last minute need for matching sisters outfits...you know, regular sewing mom wardrobe emergencies!) This is an adorable drop-waist peasant dress with short or long sleeves, pockets in the skirt and a cute bodice lace option. I did the short sleeve version since it is hitting the 100’s regularly where we live, but I think this would be adorable in the winter with long sleeves over tights and boots too! I made mine out of a mermaid fabric I have been hoarding saving for the right project and my daughter just loves it.
First off, any dress with pockets is a win. As with most 4 year olds, my little one loves a good pocket. I loved the look of the lace for this dress, but I could not find lace that really “went” with my mermaids, so I decided on ruffles. In our house we do ruffles like some people do ketchup; we put that stuff on everything! I think they look adorable and since they were made out of a coordinating seashell material, they “go” just perfectly. The pattern was well drafted, went together perfectly and I loved how clear and concise the directions were. I easily cut and sewed the dress in an evening after the kiddos went to bed.
Overall I think this is a cute and versatile take on a classic styled dress. I enjoyed making it and my daughter (clearly) enjoys wearing it. I am calling this one a win!
Until next time,
