Sewing project - easy short sleeve peasant dress for toddler 2-3T

Here's one of my recent sewing project, made using some fabric stash given to me.  I think the fabric was a polycotton blend.  Ribbons used were 9mm width polyester, machine washable.  The short sleeves and dress were made from adjusting the sleeve pattern and original bodice pattern from Emma Hardy's book, Making Children's Clothes.

Materials used:
124x100cm fabric
Pink grosgrain ribbon, 9mm width x 12cm?
Ribbons - approximately 9mm width x 80cm length?
Elastic for neckline - 6mm x 16.5" length.
Sewing machine and brown polyester thread
