My daughter in law showed me a chevron print peasant dress with pumpkin applique from Pinterest. Of course it was expensive and she asked if I could sew something similar. Peasant dresses are quick and easy so I said yes. And since I was making one little dress, I also made a second one for our other grand daughter.the dresses are brown and white chevron with machine appliqued pumpkins
The smaller one has no hem ruffle either and I did not add the chest elastic. Also, the smaller dress has elastic at the wrist of the sleeves.
If these dresses get handed down to other little girls, I put a size tag in the back of each one. I used a small piece of seam tape and hand wrote the size with an ink pen.
