Spring Peasant Blouse

Feb 21, 2011

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.

    Hi, I like it! We all need a little spring in our lives about this time of year. Did you sew the elastic to the outside of the sleeve or the inside? 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.
