What you think?
Whipped up this little peasant dress for Matea tonight and thought I'd ask for some feedback from my loyal and honest readers. I'm thinking about making several of these for the boutique, some in cute juvenile prints and some in more sophisticated styles like the currently popular bold scrolls and maybe Heather Bailey's Freshcut.
Here's what I like about it...1. It's super quick and easy for me to make with one exception. It's not based on a pattern so I'm kind of free handing the sizes based on Matea's clothes. Not the best method and definitely needs some fine tuning. Although I will say, I shot for a size 12-18 months on my first attempt and I think it fits her really well. 2. It seems to be comfortable for the Tater. She was running around and twirling and didn't try to yank it off like she sometimes does with dressier clothes. And 3. Overall, I just like the design. Sweet and simple.
So, here are my questions for you. Do you like it? Would you pay about $25 for it if you loved the pattern? Should I add ties on the side that make a bow in the back? (I though about doing this but I kind of like the idea of leaving it loose and free flowing. I'm anti-restrictive clothing for little ones).
