The Meghan peasant imparts a stunning silhouette to women of all shapes and sizes. It is relaxed and so easy to wash and wear, but can be made as dressy as you choose with lots of sleeve and length options. The flattering empire bodice can be made with a plunging neckline that shows a bit of décolleté, or it can be made to be a bit more modest, depending on your comfort level. The vibrant damasks, florals, and stripes from the Sis Boom Collection are perfectly suited for this style. Use a single fabric for a classic, continuous look, or mix and max for bohemian patchwork fun.
-Notions - thread, straight pins, 1/4" elastic, 1/2" single fold bias tape (for bell sleeved option)
-Fabric - 2.5-4 yards, depending on size, style, and options.

Looks great on, fits my GD well. Very well written, easy to follow instructions. I can sew 1/4" seams with the best of them. I spent over an hour trying to get the elastic through the casings. Finally had to use the seam ripper to get the thing made. I love when my garments are as nice on the inside as out, this was not the case. I spent so much time trying to keep from taking out all the stitches just to put the elastic in.
I'll make it again, because she loves it. I'll go into it knowing that I have to add more seam allowance
Love this pattern
thank you for a WONDERFUL pattern! I can't wait to start expanding my even a few nighties from this pattern would be nice! :D
One of my favorite Sis Boom patterns! Doesn't get any easier than this, with a clean and simple look!
Another fantastic SB pattern. I used this to make village maid costumes for our community theater. They were easy to cute and quick to sew. They flattered each different body shape of our maids. very happy.
I love this pattern! I made myself a top, and it was very easy and completed in an evening. Now, I want to make dresses for my daughters - it is very flattering and easy to understand!
Love this pattern!
Very easy . My go to pattern .
Just the style I was looking for ..can't wait to make Keep um Awesome design and no guess work about the instructions.
Love the pattern! Have made tops and dresses. Always get a compliment when I wear them.
I made my daughter a shirt using this pattern. I do agree it was a little low and did not seem to lay right under the bust area. I will have to make some adjustments but I will use again.
Very easy pattern to make. Gorgeous dress. Comfy to wear.
OMG!!! I LOVE this pattern!!! I made this dress for my wedding dress!! I have never sewn anything before and this dress was SUPER easy!!! I ended up ordering material for Hawaii and made this dresses with it!!! For my dress I used white lace over white cotton. EVERYONE could not believe I made the dresses!!!
Awesome. Can't wait to try it!
LOVE this pattern!!! So easy to follow! Have gotten lots of compliments on my dresses and many have asked me to make them one!!
I LOVE this pattern. I've made them in all different arm styles and lengths.
Sis Boom has the best patterns!! I have never been disapointed with any pattern I get! Very easy to follow & wonderful items are always created!! Thank you!!
Very quick and easy pattern. Made this dress for my 11 year old grand-daughter, and she wore it for Thanksgiving with leggins & flats. She loved it, and so did the rest of the family! I can't wait to make more for this summer for my grand-daughter, and myself!
I tried to line this dress with a thin cotton it so thick it looked horrible. Not the patterns' fault, I just wanted to try it on my own. Just wanted anyone that thought the same thing to know ahead of time. Would like to try this again some time!
Awesome love this pattern for myself, i have made both tops and a dress, and they all have looked awesome. Very good clear directions!
This was seriously the fastest thing I made for ME! I love the dress!! I'm busty and she includes instructions on how to make the dress with that in mind! THAT is very hard to find in any pattern.
This pattern has sooooo many pages (the reason for only 4 stars) I did read through all the instructions and tried to print out just what I needed, still ended up using alot of paper and ink.
But on the other side of the coin, the pattern is very clearly written, easy to understand and sews up quickly. I love the style of the dress and with all patterns, the first is a "sample" and you make adjustment from that. Very simple, easy to follow, and a style that can be worn by anyone at anytime. Makes a nice blouse also.
Quick and easy pattern to put together. Simple enough that even a novice sewer could do this as a first project.
The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I love the top of this dress, but I agree with the reviewer that stated that the skirt puffs out around the hip find myself fidgeting with the fabric below the bustline. Perhaps with some tweaking I could love it. Thank you for creating this pattern.
very nice pattern and easy instructions, even for this self professed long time novice. :) i do plan to make some of my own modifications to make the skirt fuller and bring up the neckline next time but it still an awesome one as is!
200 pages? I had to run out to the store to buy more paper. I will not be able to make this top for my daughter yet, as I have to buy more ink now, before I can finish printing out the patterns in her size. Not sure I will waist the time and cost of supplies printing out the directions.
It appears I am the only one that did not like this dress. I agree that the pattern goes together quickly and the instructions are very clear. To make it more modest in the chest area, I followed the pattern and instructions. The extra was added under the bustline and not above the bustlline so the end result compensated for a fuller bust but did not add a higher necklline. Since I don't have a full bust, I had extra fabric under the bust. I also did not like the skirt shaping. I thought it was a great idea as I made the dress but when I tried it on I had unslightly bumps. The sleeves were cute and nicely shaped.
great pattern with easy to follow instructions! love it!
Very detailed instructions, so easy to follow. Top turned out adorable.
Great pattern with so many options!
I love this pattern and instructions, I will be making one soon.
Love the pattern Thank you =)
Super easy to put together in different options.
This is one of my "go to" patterns when making clothes for myself. Easy to make and so comfortable to wear.
This is an easy and fast pattern. It works wonderfully as a maternity top or dress as well. This pattern is so easy to follow and I would recommend it for a beginner. This dress or top is really easy to dress up or dress down. So many variations with this pattern so you can really customize it for any occasion!
LOVE that this pattern has so many options!
I just finished making this dress for my 11 year old daughter. The pattern pieces were easy to put together and the instructions were very easy to follow. Heaps of pictures and step by step instructions allowed this dress to come together easily and beautifully! Thank you so much for puting together a pattern for a more adult version of the otherwise boxy looking peasant dress!
Great pattern. Easy. I've gotten tons of compliments on my top!
One of the easiest patterns I have ever used! I love the fact that there are so many options. Sis Boom has done it again! Thank you for making sewing so rewarding and fun!
This may be my new favorite dress pattern! It's easy to follow and has tons of options/sizes. Super pleased!
I LOVE the directions, and how easy it went together! I was able to make a top in under a day, and that's with three kids underfoot! I have 34E chest, and I made a size small with the 2nd cutting line and found it fit great! I made a top. I love how comfortable this is!
Nice directions! Easy enough for a beginner.
Another great pattern from sis n boom Love it! Easy to read directions, simple pattern, and looked great! I love all of her patterns,
What can I say about this fabulous pattern that hasn't already been said? Carla C is a pattern GENUIS!
I have made both tops and dresses with this pattern. It is so easy to put together and the finished products look very flattering. In fact, I only wear Meghan tops on the weekends instead of T-shirts because they are so comfortable and stylish!
Love this pattern..
Love this top!
i love this dress!!!!
Such a simple pattern with fantastic results! Can't go wrong with this one. Great fit, great style. Easy to sew and wear.
Love Love this pattern! I made this last night and received so may compliments when I wore it today! Making more for sure!
Thank you! This worked out wonderful!
I love all of the detailed instructions and variations for bust size/modesty.
The most wonderful pattern!!! Love it!
I know this is sold under SisBoom, but the pattern work is by Carla C. Carla's patterns are always on point. The fit of her designs are great too! I highly recommend this and all of her patterns!
great pattern for mother/daughter dresses!
Easy to resize to needed measurements. Made a top and matching skirt, very comfortable!
What a quick and easy top to make! I made a larger size than I normally wear and it was perfect for my growing baby belly.
Great pattern! Easy to fallow directions. I have made 2 dresses and a top so far, and I know there is more to come!
I am in love with the versatility of this dress, and all the options for many different body types.
I made this dress for easter and loved how it turned out. The pattern is very easy to understand and able to adjust for any body type or size. I can not wait to make more of these fun dresses
Such a flattering pattern!! I've made two of these for myself and got rave compliments on both of them. Marvelous directions and so many customizable options! Another score for CarlaC/Scientific Seamstress!
love this pattern
OMG love it!!! great pattern, quick and easy!
Love this pattern! Dress is so easy to make!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. Super cute. Super easy. Went together like a dream. Wore it to a wedding and got lots of compliments! Thank you Thank you!
Love this pattern! I have made two dresses so far, one from 100% cotton as suggested and one from cotton interlock as a night gown (I added an extra layer of fabric in the front bodice for extra support and coverage as my material was white). The suggested pattern measurements/ sizes are spot on (maybe a little on the large side) and the directions are very easy to follow. I omitted the elastic from the bell sleeve and this gives a very flattering result. I can't wait to make more! dresses using different colour combinations. I recommend this pattern for anyone starting out in sewing as it is easy to follow and will give guaranteed results.
I made this dress last weekend. It turned out perfect. So comfortable as well. I can't wait to make more. The directions are excellent. I have been sewing since I was about 5 and have noticed that the pattern industry has made it difficult for new sewers to learn on their own. Not with this pattern. I think it applies to beginners as well as the advanced. There are templates and measurements for everything included. There is no guess work at all. I LOVE they way Jennifer puts a pattern together and will go look at more she has done.
This is a great pattern. I made the bell sleeve version, knee length. I didn't actually add the elastic for the bell sleeve and I like the way the sleeve flows. I used one fabric for the entire dress. It came together quickly and easily - I cut it out and had it complete in just a few hours.
LOVE this dress! This is the 1st time I've actually made myself a clothing item. I'm always sewing for someone else. It is just darling...wore it to church last night & got several compliments. The hardest part is figuring out which fabric to use. Can't wait to make another & look forward to more patterns from SisBoom.
Great Pattern!!! Thank you!
I bought this pattern at the weeeee hours of the morning today and have made 2 tops already! I love it!!! The directions are awesome and very very easy to understand! I love that the pattern comes with sooooo many different sizes! I'm off to search for more SisBoom patterns to purchase IMMEDIATELY!
I purchased this pattern last night, printed it out, and made it up this morning, I love the top, I made an 1X and will make it one size larger next time, but very clear instructions, and it comes out beautifully, will be selecting fabrics to make a tri coloured one next I think. Thanks so much for the pattern, is so worth purchasing.
I just made my first dress from this pattern & I LOVE it!!! I made a size S with the middle bodice length. Next time I will probably make the next size up. It went together pretty easily thanks to the fact that CarlaC is the one who wrote the directions & included great hem templates!
I made this as a top. What can I say another great, easy, fast pattern. With all the variations available I'm sure I'll make more.
I made this dress in about an hour yesterday. Cutting the fabric took about 15 minutes. The instructions are so detailed and easy! I used a size L and took the sides in a little more. I cannot wait to shop for more fabric to make more of these dresses. They'll be great for summer, but even now I can wear tights and a light coat over it for church or out to dinner. Love it!
