|Peasant Blouse Tutorial from madebylex.com|
Here's what I used:
I picked this baby up at my local thrift store for fifty cents. The guy at the register said something like, "Wow. This'll make a great Halloween costume, huh?" When I told him that I was actually going to wear it, he looked at me like I was completely nuts. Which, maybe I am, but I digress...
I loved the fun paisley pattern and the colors on this shirt...but let's face it...that collar and those cuffs. Not so much.
Waaaaay better, don't ya' think? Oh, yeah.
Instead of adding a cuff to the sleeves I simply added another turned under casing and elastic, to give them a loosely gathered look.
I love the way it turned out! The tutorial was easy to understand and had great results!
If you happen to have a spare button-up shirt lying around I recommend giving this one a whirl!
