Peasant Dress in 3 Ways

Why not stitch up a favorite pattern in multiple styles?  Most patterns offer so many options to create different looks.  Change the length of the sleeves, lengthen or shorten the dress or top, make up shorts or pants, or even capris, add color blocking with fabrics, try various fabric weights – oh so many options from 1 pattern.

This month, Bethany of Sew-Not-Perfect blog, challenged us to use 1 pattern in 3 ways.  My answer to the challenge is a simple peasant dress in 3 ways.  I used the Portrait Peasant pattern by Scientific Seamstress.  After you check out my 1 Pattern in 3 Ways, you can join the challenge at the Link Up party HERE.  And like any good blog tour, there is a give away HERE.

Presenting, my Peasant Dresses… leave a comment to tell me which one is your fave.

First, a peasant dress with TONS of ruffles… I love ruffles!  This is the Rhumba Style from the Portrait Peasant pattern by Scientific Seamstress with ‘elbow’ sleeves and an extra wide ruffle on the cuff to match the dress ruffles.  I included the ruffles around the neckline as well.

Next is a traditional style peasant dress using FABULOUS coordinating fabrics.  This one is my girlie’s favorite of the 3 ways.

And last is my favorite.  Here I made a peasant top but color blocked a band at the bottom in the red plaid.  I LOVE everything about this outfit!  the fabric colors!  the peasant style!  the matching plaid shorts!  just everything…

  1. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I agree with your beautiful girlie. I like the traditional one. Your fabric choices are awesome on all three!

  2. Love the ideas, super cute outfits! I find the second two particularly inspiring, they look fairly simple and therefore do-able. 😉
