2nd Project

Hopefully most of you will be able to finish up your bags over the weekend. We are going to go ahead and get going on our second project - a peasant blouse. The pattern # is McCalls 5388 and it will be on sale this Thursday-Saturday (March 19-21) at Joannes for $1.99.

Here are a few peasant tops I found in retail that might inspire you and give you ideas for making it a little unique. (click the image to make it larger)

  1. I'm not gunna lie.
    This scares the crap outta me. I have never successfully made a top for myself.
    I'm gunna do it! But it might be a disater!
    Just warning you!

  2. I think you will do great. That is the beauty of the peasant top. It is super forgiving. And there are no zippers, buttons, etc... I think you will be surprised at how easy it actually is.

  3. There was a time in my life when I made absolutely everything that I wore, but it has been AGES since I made any clothes for myself...this might just be the push that I need... BUT first I have to make my bag!!! smiles!

  4. I'm so excited. Next big problem...what fabric to choose.
