Every fabulous fashionista needs, wants, must have at least one perfect peasant-style top.
Make this one in light to mediumweight floaty or drapey fabrics, like cotton voile, batiste, scarf-weight silks, rayon challis, charmeuse, silk(y) jersey knits, crepe, georgette or even sheer chiffon-type fabrics, worn over a cami, if you please!
Unfitted, slightly oversized ‘A’ line pull-on blouse has a curved hemline with a deep stitched facing and a longer back. Blouse front has a center front seam with a ‘V’ opening; the blouse back, front and raglan sleeves are gathered onto a two-piece shaped neckband. Full-length sleeves are gathered onto simple one-piece cuffs.
This essential style works in all sorts of solid colors and prints. Wear your blouse loose over slim-cut cropped pants and strappy sandals; team it with your favorite vintage jeans; or try it belted over a tiered maxi skirt for a totally boho-chic look.
For sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 you’ll need around 2 ½ yards/230cm of fabric; for sizes 18-20-22-24-26-28 you’ll need around 3 yards/ 275cm of fabric. All sizes require 1/4 yard/23cm fusible interfacing. Fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.
I love this pattern but i think i must do something wrong the sleeve cuffs always seem too tight.. i also keep using the wrong fabric, i think in a cotton it would be very nice to wear, i've made a version with the from seam more open which has been great for nursing.
Refined peasant blouse....
