Peasant Top

Peasant tops are coming back in style as the Bohemian look becomes more popular. This light and airy sewing pattern is perfect for the warmer season. This Peasant Top adds a twist to the traditional peasant shirt with its three-quarter length bell sleeves and slightly more tailored design. This gorgeous sewing pattern would look great on a variety of body types and is very figure-flattering! You can also alter the pattern to make the shirt as short or as long as you need it to be.

I have been sewing for many years. I love this top and will make it but... I do not understand how to get the pattern. How do you print it?

I'm new at this. Can someone give me a hint about the size range of this top. It's really cute I'd like to make it, but I'm a size 22, so ...

I used to never wear peasant tops because I felt like they weren't tailored enough to flatter my figure. However, the geometric bell sleeves and half-sewn front bodice give my body just the right amount of definition while still being comfortably loose. LOVE this pattern!

This versatile pattern could be used to create a variety of looks. Skip the bell sleeves and create a tailored solid short sleeved top. A gauze or cheesecloth fabric could be used with the bell sleeves for the bohemian look. A nice cotton print and longer bell sleeves gives you another top. All of them easy and all of them using only a yard or a little more of fabric. This is on my to do list for sure.

I recently came across some Cheesecloth in a fabric shop and remembered some of the hippy style tops I used to wear in days gone by. When I saw this pattern, and the tutorial writer mentioned it would look great made up in something like a cheesecloth, I just knew I was off back to that fabric store to get some. I might even consider some lacy embellishments for the neckline and sleeve hem.

uses little fabric. Easy to sew and looks really feminine and nice

I love simple tops like this. They are super easy to wear and look very chic with a nice chunky necklace!
