Peasant Blouse

I can now share with you a sewing project that I've been working on for a while, the baby's peasant blouse from Sew Hip issue 1 refashioned from an old Indian block print cotton shirt of my husbands.

Rosie - New top  Align Centre

I should say that when I sat down to work on the top it went very quickly, the problem was the perennial one of making the time to do it. I'm really pleased with my first effort at sewing clothes for many years and I know I'm biased but I think Rosie looks very cute in it!

Rosie doesn't look "cute" she looks ADORABLE! And how wonderful that she gets to look that good in material from daddy's shirt. Now that's a daddy's girl.

You're not biased - she is very cute!

You did a lovely job with the blouse, and how wonderful that you "recycled" one of your husband's shirts to make this "hand-me-down".

How clever to use an old shirt. I loved making clothes for my children when they are little. I just loved that sense of accomplishement.
