Peasant Dress! Finally

Knit Peasant dress DIY

They are everywhere, everyone gushes about how easy they are, everyone makes them. That is, everyone but me. I had never had any success with peasant dresses...till last week. It's not that I didn't try, I tried making one for myself, my daughter, our bitch, neighbors bitch...well ok, not for the bitches....but you get my drift.
So this weekend, an early morning trip got rescheduled to afternoon, right when we were heading out of the door, and I seized the opportunity to try my hand at peasant dress..again. And you know what, it worked. I did have to do some adjustments after cutting, it wasn't totally cut-n-go smooth. The best part is - I saved the template for once, so that means, I can crank out a peasant dress any time I want to in my daughter's size.
It even looks fab on her..yeah those matronly pleats on the sleeves. They look totally adorable on her.
What did you do on the long weekend.
