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 made this shirt I light weight tencel. I had heard it ran roomy, but since I think a peasant shirt should be uber-roomy I made a strait 22 and it fit my pear shaped figure just fine. I appreciated the quality paper and the tutorial on the website. I'll definitely be making it again.
This is a fun, pretty top that is easy to put together. I do recommend a muslin, just like Trudy always says, because this top runs big. It took me a while to fit it to my liking, but once I did, the pattern was a dream. I'd also recommend making your notches really tall around the neck when you cut out your fabric. If you match the notches exactly, the gathers will be perfect, and tall notches are easier to see! Overall, this pattern is well drafted, easy to put together and absolutely on trend!
so glad I got this pattern I like the thick paper so I can use over and over this shirt is so cute happy in Stockton Calif
I love the style of this top, a nice change from the usual blouse on top of skirt look...went together quickly. Its starting to get cold here in Colorado in the evenings...plan to use this pattern to make a flannel nightgown. (longer, obviously than the top)
I really love this pattern! I've already made two of them with a voile fabric-in-waiting for a third. Very breezy, floaty and pretty. I made one with a crinkle, burn-out ,50/50 cotton/poly fabric so I didn't sew the facing in as Trudy recommended in the tutorial for crinkle fabrics. I'm so glad she said that as I probably would have sewed in the facing not realizing I'm looking horrible :-) The other blouse is made with a lawn fabric. Can't wait to try the voile. I'm thinking it is going to be my favorite. The pattern was easy to follow and the tutorials are fabulous! Please keep doing tutorials as I learn something new each and every time! The only part that confused me on the pattern was after I double folded the front neckline pieces and sewed them down, I was left with a curled up raw edge on each piece just below that point. I found I needed to clip the fabric just below the folded edges so the seam joining the two front pieces would be flat and not jumbled up in the seam. I'm just not sure this is the correct way to sew that seam.
