Peasant Top and Pig Tails

A favorite design, the peasant top or, if made longer, peasant dress is an easy to slip on and go option. Here's one showcasing an Amy Butler print from her Midwest Modern line, an older collection but the orange and pink shades are just lovely for the transition to fall. my daughter Grace found it comfy for a trip to the Indiana State Fair.

By the end of the day, the dress had taken a direct hit from a chocolate ice cream cone, but you can see in the last picture that I satin stitched around the edge of a eyelet heart shape to add an "applique" effect near the bottom hem. Never fear, it washed up just fine.
