One of my favorite things to sew is clothing for children.  Last winter in the midst of my busy poncho season, I found a fabric that I knew would be perfect for my granddaughter and maybe even my grandson.  Like any good fabric addict, I purchased the fabric even though I had no idea what I was going to make from it.

This spring, when I had a little time on my hands, I pulled out that fabric.  I wanted to make something for my granddaughter that she could use or wear often.  I considered a pillowcase but opted to make a dress instead.  This is my granddaughter Aaliyah modeling her Easy Peasy Peasant Dress that I made her using my “Lily” fabric.

Aaliyah has a dog named Lily, and you can see from the picture below why I had to buy this fabric.  This is Lily:

The dog on the fabric looks exactly like Lily does right before she goes to the groomers.  I thought that Aaliyah would like the fabric, and she does! 

The Easy Peasy Peasant Dress is a pdf pattern available from Tie Dye Diva Sewing Patterns.  As the name implies, it’s an easy project.  No buttons, no zippers.

Aaliyah’s little brother Jayden likes Lily, too.  It’s a good thing Lily is a good-natured dog.  Some dogs wouldn’t tolerate all of this affection.     
I had enough fabric left to make a little Lily project for Jay, too.  But that’s a blog post for another day.  Stay tuned!
