This is a classic peasant top pattern with long sleeve and short sleeve options - Slim A-line shape is perfect for layering under costumes, jumper dresses, corset tops or for wearing alone. Full short sleeves or tapered long sleeves, optional slim back sash.
I'll show you different methods of finishing the top to get different looks, and you can make it with inexpensive cotton muslin, your favorite quilting cottons, voile, dotted swiss, and much more!
Don't let the beautiful results or fear of "sleeves' make you hesitate - peasant tops are very easy to sew, and I take you through every step, one by one. Every stitch you need to sew is clearly diagrammed onto full color photos and includes text instructions as well.

I'm Jen Hagedorn, the designer behind Tie Dye Diva sewing patterns. My line of downloadable sewing patterns focuses on easy-to-sew and easy-to wear classic clothing designs for baby and child, with just a touch of whimsy like animal ears on fleece hats and ruffled bottoms on baby wear. I aim to make sewing a gratifying and educational process that gives you a result you're proud of.
Tie Dye Diva patterns was launched in 2007. The line currently features more than 70 unique sewing patterns for baby, children, adults and home. Besides the PDF format patterns you find on this site and at retail sites around the web, you can find Tie Dye Diva patterns in publications including:
Stash Books' Hat Shop: 25 Projects to Sew, from Practical to Fascinating (Design Collective), compiled by Suzanne Woods,
Wiley Press, Sewn Hats by Carla Hegeman, and Crim
Annie's Sewing Sew Special Baby Gifts.
I am also a workshop instructor here on Craftsy.com. My Twirl Skirt with Bloomers pattern workshop is a great way for beginning sewers to sew a beautiful garment with help available at every step of the way.
I live in Northern California with a supportive and patient husband who never complains about having serger tails sticking to his shirt, and 3 beautiful children who are great fit models, accomplished fabric-stash refolders and enthusiastic critics of my work.
