While I anxiously wait for Millik to receive her Swap package for the Terry Pratchett Discworld Swap II, I decided I would post what else I have made.
So after reading this post on Craftster I totally coveted some peasant tops for myself. So I started looking around for the pattern that Shakespear lists in her post, Simplicity 8741. Know now that I checked 3 JoAnn’s and 4 Walmarts and not one had it. So I checked the Simplicity website and the pattern is no longer listed as a current pattern, nor is it in the discontinued patterns section.
So being stubbourn as hell, I took a look around and was able to find it on Ebay in my size and uncut (which is a good thing btw) for a whopping 99centolas. Nice.
I really needed summery female shirts that weren’t t-shirts. For the love of all that is holy I own more t-shirts than any woman I know and most of them are men’s shirts- they aren’t very flattering or pretty, I’ll totally admit that. So I have these new additions to my wardrobe that are summery and pretty. I may make more as I totally love peasant tops, most likely a fetish garnered from too many years LARPing.
There is another pattern in the envelope for a sleeveless like peasant top that I may try today.
So if you can find the pattern, its an easy sew and it churns out a really pretty addition to your wardrobe.
Oh yeah, I forgot…. Arrrrrrrrr
