SEW GROOVY Peasant Dress Pattern PDF Sewing Pattern 6 Mos. - by FootLooseFancyFree on Etsy Children Clothing “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 5 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.
I do not have a fairy tale or quaint story to tell. I am just a hard working mother of 5 children and now I am raising 2 teen granddaughters. I have a great husband who even finds time after his long day to compliment me on my sewing designs.
I started sewing in the third grade. I have been sewing for over 50 years. My daughter and granddaughters still kid me about being a fashion designer when I criticize their choice of attire. I am ancient in their eyes. Most of my designs are from when I sewed for my daughter 30 years ago. That makes me and my designs VINTAGE!
Over the years, I have studied many different and correct sewing techniques. I started out with basic sewing for 4H club competition and later learned couture sewing techniques for state contests. I started college with sewing and design contest scholarships, majoring in fashion design but later switched to business. When my daughter was little, I went to sewing school and learned French hand and machine sewing techniques and smocking. My patterns will show how to accomplish many of these techniques. The patterns will give you the choices of just basic sewing on a plain sewing machine, options for finer sewing techniques and tips on sewing with a serger. All of my patterns are designed and written with the beginner seamstress in mind.
