Sweet Peasant

 Isn't she sweet?  I made this peasant top after being inspired by this post at From an Igloo.  The tutorial is for the ruffled jeans, but I loved the top!  At the bottom of the post she does provide information on where she purchased the pattern, but I knew there were enough other free patterns/tutorials out there that I wouldn't need the pattern. However, if you would like to make this top and feel you need a pattern, now you know where to find it. :)

The tutorials I used to create my pattern are found here at Sew Like My Mom, and here at IndieTutes.  You may recognize these from the dress I made for a friend's daughter (shown in this post, after the totes).

Every item is a learning experience. :)  The fabric at the bottom was added because my initial pattern was too short.  I even remembered to take seams/hems into account this time, so I'm not sure what happened!  LOL  Now I'm wondering if this top might also fit Shiloh so she could wear it with the capris I made her?  She's a year and a half older than Jericho... and taller... but they have about the same girth.  In fact, I think Shiloh may be slimmer!  ;)

That's all for now!  I'm thinking I might make a little skirt or capris to coordinate with this top, but that will depend on time, and whether or not I have suitable fabric (or a good JoAnn's coupon!  *grin*).

Thanks, Karen. :) I've always left that unchecked because it felt more secure... but I comment on enough other blogs that I guess I can make it easier for others to get in contact with me. ;)

I've made two magnetic bookmarks. They are so quick!! My young son swiped one immediately (even though it was a girly pattern. LOL) and I made one for a friend's daughter as well. I love a good 5 minute project. :)

Super cute!! I think I need to learn to sew better (or maybe just slow down and be more fussy) so I can start doing stuff for my cutie myself. Check Mill End for fabric. They have good prices normally and good coupons. I have to remind myself of them all the time.
