I've been wanting to make a Belgian style landscape dress for ever and finally got around to it before my daughter is old enough to look at me like wearing a dress with wheel barrows on it is just crazy. I came across this at Hobby Lobby and I thought it might just work. I also thought I would make it for a spring-y Easter dress. I needed a pattern that was pretty straight forward to show off the pattern. I used this pattern once before for a holiday dress and I really loved the retro/classic style. Although, I love the cap sleeves, I thought taking them off would suit the fabric better and give her a slightly different look.  Here is the result.  (I also lined it just like the first time and added a wee bit of tule to the bottom of the lining to help keep the skirt full. And I added a couple of inches to the bottom of the skirt for length). 

(She gets quite forlorn when I part her hair in a way she simply cannot stand).

  1. Stunning! So simple and yet so beautifully sewn. :) My daughter gives me precisely the same look when I part her hair the opposite of where she "prefers" shall we say.....coincidentally she is 9 also...hmmmmm?

    1. Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Or, I should say, she's not the only one.
