Peasant top #1 done

Once I started cutting out my fabric yesterday I got addicted and couldn't stop. I think from start to finish it took 3-4 hours (while watching tv). I am very happy with this pattern. I went down about 2 sizes from what I would normally sew in a pattern and it fits perfect. The only alteration I made was shortening it by 3 inches. I think that with my next one I will shorten it a little less and maybe take in the sides a bit.
My only reservation is my fabric choice. The bold print is even more bold than I expected. But I think that if I pair it with some skinny jeans, ballet flats and maybe even a cardigan (to tone it down) it will look great.




I was also thinking this would be a perfect pattern to lengthen and make into a dress. Pair it with a thick belt and it would be a perfect summer dress.
