This spring I stitched up a donation for a local church’s St Brigid’s Day celebration. I chose the Party Time Peasant Dress and made one with short and one with long sleeves. This is my go- to dress for quick, easy and cute!
I wanted to make a single outfit, with a St Patrick’s Day theme, that could also be used for other seasons for extra doll play. I loved how these came out!
Once the under dress was done, I wanted to make a shamrock themed “overdress” to go with it. I turned to the Sugar n Spice Dress, and decided to modify the pinafore to get the look of a vest.
I printed a new Sugar n Spice bodice, and on the back, I cut a low, scooped neckline. I put it together following the pattern, and attached the skirt moving the skirt edges in about an inch on each side of the bodice, so the polka dot party dress could be seen underneath. I added a few AD: kam snaps and it was done! I think the overdress could also be worn reversed as well. I don’t know which sleeves I liked better. 🙂
