Princess Peasant Top Tutorial

I’m sharing the tutorial for this adorable bell sleeved, peasant top with you today.  (The top is made with my free peasant dress pattern.)

We finally made it to the pumpkin patch for pictures!  (The day before Halloween, no less. Smiley  If I can drag something out as long as possible, I totally will.  Anyone else out there with me?)

I really wanted my guys to be wearing something I made for the photos.  Different issues kept coming up and interrupting me during the sewing process, but I finally got it done in the nick of time.  You can’t see them in the photo below, but I made the cargo pants my son is wearing.  (I already blogged about them here.

Her top is a variation of my peasant dress pattern.  I just love how it turned out!  The top looks perfect styled with skinny jeans and riding boots!  (Thank you to my Facebook page fan, Susan, for helping me come up with a name for the top!)

I used a Rayon knit for her top (from Funkalicious Fabrics) and left the top un-hemmed.  I only had one yard of the 60 inch fabric and was barely able to squeak out the top.  If I had had a few more inches, I would’ve made the top a bit longer and hemmed it too.
