KCWC-pretty peasant top

Made with the Sweet Dress pattern and fabric from the Go Fly a Kite line (Cream Ice Cream), from Ribbon Retreat.

I made a wide casing around the neck and put in a few button holes for the bias tape to loop through. Once I had it arranged I tacked it down through the casing in the back so it wouldn’t slip out.

tada! (love this fabric!)

No pictures of kiddos in them yet since this was all done pretty last minute before my trip!


  1. Lovely!!!

  2. Very pretty, I love it!

  3. Beautiful fabric and I love the bow! What a great idea. I must do this on my next peasant dress. Dangit, it would’ve been perfect for the Snow White one I just finished. Oh well, it’s not like I won’t make another. 🙂

  4. Beautiful Jess!

  5. Gorgeous!! I adore that fabric and it’s such a pretty top 🙂

  6. LOVE that fabric! I wish I had bought more of it when I did! LOVE the idea of the button holes too!

  7. This is darling!! How do you label the size of your creations?

  8. That is so cute! My little girl is really turning into a girly-girl, so I know she’d love it too!


  9. it’s so pretty jess, love that print too, perfect for that top!

  11. I love this fabric and dress! Beautiful!!

  12. I am in love with the fabric! The bias tape through the casing is such a great idea. Thanks for sharing how you did it. I’ll have to give it a shot next time I meant a pesant top.

  13. love, love, love this fabric! i have the scrapbook paper and i can’t bring myself to use it cause i like it so much! i also have it as my wallpaper on my laptop! super cute top!!!

  14. Gorgeous! I tried to do a peasant nightgown yesterday and messed it up again. I am determined to figure out what I am doing wrong here…

  15. Beautiful dress and lovely fabric! I bookmarked that fabric recently and hope to buy some soon.

  16. Yep, the fabric is lovely. What a sweet top for Charlotte.

  17. Did you have to modify the cut of the sleeve at all for that pattern? I’ve often thought about leaving out the elastic for the sleeve, but it seems too… puffy. Just curious if you cut it down at all.

  18. Oh, it is so beautiful!

  19. Okay, I LOVE the fabric. I think it’s safer this way…having boys rather than girls; otherwise, I would be sewing all the day long!

  20. Encantadora y fresca…

  21. Like the others, I love the fabric! adorable! And the little bow is precious. Love seeing what everyone else is doing for KCWC! I’m making a BUNCH of pants… 🙂

  22. ACK! I need that fabric! It’s adorable Jess!

  23. Oh that fabric is so cute and I love the ribbon bow! The sweet little dresses I’ve made get SO much wear. Good choice.

  24. So pretty and that fabric!! Love it!

  26. Sorry I forgot to link to the pattern! It’s fixed, but for those who asked, it’s the Sweet Dress pattern from Leila and Ben.
