Peasant Blouse



What a pleasure to sew this easy-peasy adult size peasant blouse from a FREE pattern I found on http://www.thingsofcloth.com/. I wanted to make one from new fabric I bought but since you are given instructions to make your own pattern, I decided to try it first on some older fabric I had in my stash. Teresa's instructions are great! I made my own pattern and although I made the first one a bit bigger to be sure, the pattern is perfect as is.


A close-up view of the stunning fabric with red roses border and the sleeves which I also elasticated. It is such a cute blouse. I bought this cotton fabric for making a bag but I think it looks so much better in a blouse!

I have cut out two more of this pattern and am busy making a pink floral blouse at the moment. I highly recommend this pattern. Thank you Teresa for great instructions and a fab pattern!

I discovered this fantastic site today via my search for a peasant blouse pattern. If anyone has a link I can use to obtain this pattern and tutorial, I would be very appreciative. The link under the picture did not lead to the pattern as had hoped.

Thanks

Wow you've made a beautiful top!
I am so glad you found it easy to follow. :-)
Thank you for your positive comments!
The pattern itself is hosted on my website, but the html version of the tutorial (with a link to the PDF) is found on my blogger site: http://thingsofcloth.blogspot.com.au/2008/07/adult-size-peasant-blouse-tutorial.html
