Chiffon Peasant Blouse

 Baby Girl needed some new clothes, so we headed to the fabric store and spent $40 on fabric to buy 5 new shirts.  Here's the first one: 
I used Simplicity 1915 for the basic shape.  I split it down the front a few inches and attached a bow.  I also added elastic on the sleeves.

Chiffon may be my least favorite fabric to work with, but I love how the shirt turned out. More importantly, she loves it too-she's already worn it twice. 


  1. You are an all star mom. My mom HATED sewing on chiffon, but she too was a trooper and made me a ton of ballet skirts through my middle and high school years. Major mom points for sewing clothes, bonus mom points for doing it with chiffon!

  2. It did turn out great! I can see why she loves it!

  3. This is super cute! I love many of your ideas. Thank you for sharing. I am hosting the first ever Pattern Party starting friday. It is a linky party only for those posts that provide free patterns. If you have any that you would like to share, I'd love to have you. Check out the details!

  4. I love the fabric but I am not good at sewing clothes. You did a great job though.

  5. This blouse is just beautiful! Great job on the sewing...I really don't even think I could sew chiffon!
    I found you through the Skip to my Lou, "Made By You Monday" link party.
    Happy to be a follower!

  6. Cute shirt! I don't have any luck with chiffon, but I bet I could make it with a different fabric. Great Job!
