I pulled a white peasant blouse (sales tag attached) from the grab bag. The batiste-like fabric features self-fabric ribbons and eyelet cut outs. The neckline is machine smocked . . .
. . . and the hem has a sheer underlay.
Very pretty and would make a perfect sundress or wedding party dress for a little girl.
First, I cut off the raglan sleeves.
Then, trimmed the sides.
Since the fabric is a little sheer, I French-seamed the sides.
Didn’t have to worry about the neckline or hem. Just sewed self-fabric bias tape along the armholes and left enough length for tie ribbons.
Now, I just need a little girl! LOL. 🙂
Hmmm, wondering about thrift store men’s flannel shirts . . .
Have a good week! – – Joanne
