Where to Get the Amazing Fabric

Peasant dresses are the easiest of all girls summer dresses to make and there are many free tutorial on the web. It takes about a yard of fabric for girls up to 10 years old. Go for 1.4 or 1.5 yards or more if you want to add additional details or want your dress to be longer. You can also make the top ruffled collar (and a strip at the bottom of your dress) of a contrast colored fabric — in case your main fabric is ‘just not enough’ or just to add whimsy and fun to your dress. Be creative!

For the contrast fabric, use up a small remnant from your fabric stash. You will also need elastic for the neckline at the sides and back, and a yard of black/white gingham ribbon.
