Pink Campy Peasant Top

Making a peasant top is uber-simple IMHO… It is easier than whipping up a pair of ruffle pants!

Then sew the bodice to a sleeve on one side, with the bodice inside-out, and the right-side-out sleeve tucked inside with the “j’s” lined up. Sew around the two “j’s” (now a “u”). Repeat for second sleeve. Hem the sleeves and bottom, then add a length of elastic (about the length of the circumference of your daughter’s head) as you hem the neck.

I am lurving this fabric! I even saw some of the blue version of this Tula Pink “Moon Shine” in the current Matilda Jane collection right after I was done making this! Great minds?!
