I am SOO happy to be back! It was a blast having all those lovely knock off guests over to visit, but I sure missed you guys! (here's where you say: we missed you too, Jess!) On to the sewing! You'd better believe I've been busy!
These peasant shirts were some of the first clothing items I sewed for Sadie. Believe it or not I used to swear off sewing clothing ("too hard", I believe, was my mantra) but these tops are so easy. I used the Sweet Dress pattern from Leila and Ben, although I've used this tutorial and this one also in the past.
Ok numero uno PT: made with Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday-from my sponsor Fabric Closet, and the tie is made with Heather Bailey Bijoux Mod Beads in Rose-from my sponsor Tuft Love!
I used this quick tutorial for the tie, and also gathered the bottom of the shirt a little bit before sewing the tie on. I love how it turned out!
Numero dos PT: This next one is simple but I added an elastic casing around the bottom for a bubble shirt effect. Cute, no? The fabric is Sanibel in Teal Mosaic, from my sponsor Ribbon Retreat!
With C's shirts I kept it simple and let the fabric speak for itself. It really does, doesn't it? This fabric is Riley Blake's Sweet Dot in Multi from the Fabric Closet also-and I adore it. You've seen a bit of it here before. YuM!
Last but not least is this one-made with Alexander Henry in Caitlin Stripe. ( I moved the casing in a little bit to get that ruffly-ish edge on the neck and sleeves) Don't even remember where I purchased this fabric...but it's so cute!
I've been trying to use up my cute fabric-and not give in to my hoarding tendencies. Doesn't it make you smile to see a pretty piece of fabric being used or worn? Well, it does for me. :D
I hope you've enjoyed this plethora of peasant tops. If not, my condolences. ;)
and if you've lasted through this whole post-why not head over to my Facebook page and check out a fun little contest for a fabric scrap bag! Give me your best line regarding Charlotte's thoughts in this pic...note the snot trails...that could be some good comedy! I'm already laughing up a storm!
