I did a test run on the peasant style dress with long sleeves from The Handmade Dress, Miss Madeline pattern. I ended up with 3/4 sleeves, which turned out to be perfect for an almost 2 year old. Little Miss got to wear the dress yesterday to the Children's Museum and looked so cute. I even made her a matching bow to wear with the dress. Now that the test run was successful I'll be making some more of these in some more expensive fabrics. She seemed to really like the dress (especially since it is PINK and has Woggies on it!!) and said it was confortable!!
