Pattern Review ~ Tie A Bow Around Me Peasant Dress by Fun4Me2
Introducing......... the Tie a Bow Around Me Peasant Dress from Fun4Me2. I was able to test this pattern for Dee and it is a darling dress loaded with options. It comes in sizes 6mo - 7 and has a roomy fit to grow with your girl. This PDF pattern gives directions for making a bubble hem or single layer skirt, apron option, and single or double layer flutter sleeves. Dee also includes many examples & cutting guides for each of her sample dresses.
I made a size 7 for my Nugget. She normally wears a 6/7 so I played it safe and sewed up a size. The fit on this pattern is generous and my dress was too big for Nugget. I'm hoping it will fit next spring!
To compensate for the extra width around the waist, I wrapped the bow around the front and it is darling! Wear it either way - bow in the front or back.
My favorite part of this dress is the double flutter sleeve. I also love how you could mix up coordinating fabrics and think the apron would look great with a border & added applique. You can get so many looks from this pattern and it's a great value at $4.50!
