BOTH tutorials are included with this purchase, so you can take your pick! The abridged version is about 14 pages shorter than the full version
The Four Seasons Knit Peasant Dress and Top is perfect for any time of year! This unique peasant style dress/top is different than others of its kind in that the elastic travels over the shoulders only, not the front. This leaves the front bodice completely flat and smooth, unlike the traditional peasant bodice, where the front bodice becomes "gathered" by the elastic. Sew it with long sleeves for winter, ¾ length sleeves for fall, short sleeves for spring, or adorable double flutter sleeves for summer. This tutorial teaches you how to sew your bodice using stretch knit fabric…no serger required! You will also learn how to make a charming “faux” bib, by sewing an easy no hem knit ruffle to the bodice, then decorating with buttons. There is an adorable ruched ruffle around the bottom of the skirt, or make a traditional ruffle hem…so many possibilities! Plus, the dress can be sewn entirely out of knits, or use a woven fabric for the skirt and ruffles….you can also choose dress or top/tunic length. You can even use woven fabrics for the sleeves if you want! Sizes 0-3 months through 12 are included. Happy stitching!
