Spring Peasant Blouse

Needed a little Spring in my life. I found this fabric at a little indie fabric store in my neighborhood. The only change I made to this old Butterick pattern was to sew the elastic directly on the sleeve instead of using a casing, and then added some narrow black cording as trim on the sleeves and bottom. Oh yea...I also added 2 rows of of heirloom stitching on the ruffle.

The new clear elastic makes both options possible. And yes, easier than a casing. Enjoy wearing springtime as well as carrying it in your heart.
