My recently completed peasant style blouse/tunic top, graciously modeled for y'all by Betty the dress form;)
 
~Front~
 
~Back~
 
I used Simplicity 3750, but made a few "improvements", of course.  
 
  • I didn't want a big sash around the whole top, so I made simple ties instead. 
  • I also made my own cuffs because I didn't like the buttoned ones they had - ok, so I'm lazy and didn't want to make button holes;)  They ended up a bit tight (I always do that!), so I need to rework them at some point...
  • And I added elastic to the back neckline - it gaped open and looked really weird without it.
  • Oh, and I raised the neckline by 2" and seriously shortened the front neckline elastic - uh, talk about not being able to bend over otherwise;)
 
On the whole, I love this blouse!  It'll probably be worn out by the end of summer;)

That is adorable! In fact, I'm sitting here looking at it, trying not to covet :).

Oh, cuteness!  I love it!  I think this pattern should be one of our new matching ensembles...;)
Betty makes such a charming and useful companion - I'm so glad you have her!

Cuteness indeed! Love the style--it's like a Regency dress, but shortened for more casual events.
*Files away new design idea*
 
I love your title, BTW--it's perfect for the print...but now I'm having serious ice cream cravings. Hee!
 
God bless,

That is such a cute top! You could be an extremely successful professional seamstress/designer whatchamacallit. You know what I'm trying to say?
