Peasant dress

My friend asked me to make a white under-dress for her daughter's highland dance costume. It is basically a raglan peasant dress, gathered elastic neckline, sleeves, and waistband with a 6 inch hem, to allow for growth. I used the instructions in this online file. It gave me the technique and I used an older version of the dress as a guideline.

Here is the old dress....

Here is the paper pattern I developed....
and here is the finished new dress.
Mostly it won't be very visible when wearing the costume, just a bit of white peaking out at the sleeve, hem and neck.
