This is my second time making the Peasant Blouse by Tie Dye Diva. I was thrilled with the first one, both how it turned out and the attention to detail in the pattern.
Thank goodness for BACKUPS, or you wouldn't be able to see the original peasant blouse. In writing the beginning of this post, I somehow managed to delete the post I was referring back to... totally my own fault, not paying attention and I clicked one too many times. The original post is recovered and unless I told you, you'd never know... unless of course you tried to click on it during the time when it wasn't there and when I was muttering and moaning, wondering if I'd be able to retrieve it. So, after all that, you really should go and look at the pattern review of the peasant blouse... LOL!!!
Once again, I've chosen to finish the sleeves ant neckline with shirring. It's so easy to do and I just love the look of it.
This time I added the ruffle; easy to sew and a great way to finish off the bottom, especially if the blouse is going to be worn not tucked in.
This really is a quick and easy make. The fabric is White Ground Cartoon Bear, a 58", 100% cotton, from Wholeport. It's rather cute and went down well with both Little Miss and her Mum. Thanks, Wholeport, for giving me the fabric used in this project. Being 58" wide, I have lots of fabric left over.
I wish I knew more about the different types of cotton fabric. It's a light weight cotton, so perhaps it's poplin, but I'm not sure. I use a lot of quilting cottons to sew clothes for kids, but for a peasant blouse, I think the lighter weight cotton sits very well and it will be lovely and cool for our upcoming Summer.
As with any peasant blouse, the fit is loose, making it comfortable and allowing lots of room for growth.
Little Miss teamed her new blouse with leggings and boots for the photo shoot. Love her style!!!

I'll be adding the peasant blouse to the Tops and Shirts for Children collection, here at Threading My Way.
