I actually made this shirt for Sadie a few months ago…I think just after Chad was born. I finally remembered to take a picture of it before she outgrew it.
Most peasant top patterns I’ve seen are identical on the front and back, but Sadie had a cute dress with peasant-type sleeves and a collar that’s higher at the back than at the front, so I made a pattern out of it (two in fact…the first one was way off).
For the fabric, I wanted something light and cool, and I ended up using Sadie’s Great Grandma’s pyjamas!
That’s why there’s a seam down the back…I ran out of pieces big enough to do both sides so I positioned an existing seam down the middle.
I also didn’t take the time to double check the elastic before I sewed up the neck casing and it was twisted! I didn’t fix it.
But I still like it.
