This pattern was based on creativity. There are options for a dress or a top and skirt. There is a possibility of a lot of blank canvas on this outfit for appliques or creative fabric placements.

It is snug like the snug peasant top, but this time I give you shirring measurements and how to insert elastic if you don't like to shirr. There is a detailed description on how to shirr for those that might not know how.

Included in this pattern are measurements to cut with a ruler and then 3 pages of printable patterns for the top and the skirt. Colorful pictures are all over the pages for help.

Post a Review

• Sewing machine
• Iron & Ironing board
• Ruler – preferably a long clear ruler like those used for quilting
• Rotary Cutter
• Thread to coordinate with fabric
• Elastic thread – I suggest 3M or Guttermann brands (Guttermann can usually be found at JoAnn’s Fabrics)
• Scissors
• Pins
• Printer and printer paper – for printing the pattern pieces
• Tape – for assembling the pattern pieces
• Fabric marking pen

Fabric yardages vary greatly on what style you choose.
