Pattern Description:

Introducing the Leighanna!!! This peasant dress/top (named for one of our sweetest little fans) has the most darling silhouette and options galore. The bodice can be made with a working drawstring neckline, or with an elasticized mock drawstring for easy dressing. Two separate patterns are provided to make bell or basic sleeves in a range of lengths. Add a bit of elastic to the arm opening and you have a perfect puffed sleeve! Use this pattern to make a billowy dress, a chic top, a nighty, a simple costume, or a great basic layering piece.
