This is my first sampling of fall sewing, a retro peasant dress for myself. It is full of fall colors and still cool enough to wear in a South Texas fall.
This is "The London Peasant Dress" from Lila Tueller Designs. I made it totally according to the directions. I first made the brown trim with a brown and green print. It was lost in all that color. So I took it off and replaced it with this two-tone brown. I love the pop in the brown.
I made a Large in this pattern and it fits great. The pattern is loose fitting, so sizing isn't a big deal. I like the comfort of this dress, but I may try Serendipity Studios peasant dress from her book. It has elastic on the shoulder instead of all the way around the neckline. I think it will be more polished and not so frumpy. If I made a weeks worth of these dresses, I would have a complete fall wardrobe.
Happy Fall Sewing!
