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)

  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.
