I’ve been feeling extra sassy lately and I attribute it to the twirly, whirly skirts I’ve made during our recent circle skirt and Lila & June sew-a-longs! Now it’s time to sew a top to go with our sassy skirts! I thought the perfect pairing would be a self-drafted peasant top! This is a top that is easy to make and is great for beginners or experienced sewers alike!
Over the recent months, you may have seen the very popular Rita blouse being made. It is in the style of a peasant blouse, but a bit more structured. The one we will be making is more blousey and looks more traditional, not to mention it looks great either with a solid colour or with patterns. You can also give it a bit of extra oomph by adding ric-rac or embroidered pieces. It will be a really fun blouse to make!
I have created an FAQ page with links and you will find it in the files area over in our Facebook Group Killer Kitsch Vintage WIPs. There is a variety of tutorials including a very easy to follow one by the Things of Cloth Blog (the neck is a bit higher on this one if you want a lower neckline to keep that in mind when drafting). I have put the pdf tutorial in the files as well. This is the one I am going to be following. 🙂
