“Sew Groovy” Peasant Dress is a softly gathered a line shaped dress with a flattering scoop neckline. Such a sweet and comfortable dress with elastic casing around the neck and sleeves. All color coded sizes from 6 months to 14 years are included in the same pattern.

Some peasant dresses look more like a paper bag with armholes cut out. “Sew Groovy” has more shapely lines and curves like the dresses from my groovy days of the 60’s. To accomplish this pattern, I had to make the PDF pattern a full paper pattern that tapes together. Most peasant patterns are just straight pieces of fabric with armhole templates cut out. No shaping. If you do not want to tape together a full pattern then my “Sew Dainty “ blouse or under dress with just measurements and armhole templates is a good choice.

To add BLING, I have made my sample dress from a whimsy border print. It turned a plain dress into a WOW dress.

Need more BLING? Then add an optional bow sash or bow sash in back and flower in front or just the flower for several different looks. Just use your imagination and the sky is the limit.

Long and ¾ sleeve versions are included in the pattern.
