Peasantly Cute!

I made this peasant top for my baby daughter, Alyssa, as part of her back-to-school wardrobe. Peasant tops are really easy to make. Mine is a variation of the Prairie Blouse from Seams to Me a book by Anna Maria Horner. There is also an easy tutorial on one of my favorite blogs, Blueprints.

I purchased the fabric a couple of months ago from Sew It Up. The pink fabric was a coordinating/complimentary extra!

I used less than 1/2 yard of each fabric to make. This top fits girl size 7.

I plan to make several of these tops for Alyssa this school season. I have loads of dark denim and will make some cute elastic waist pants to complete this outfit.

Until next time....HAPPY SEWING!
