Here are 6 different ways to sew the Playtime Peasant Top PDF Sewing Pattern from Oh Sew Kat!
Make a Short Sleeve Peasant Top for your Doll
Make them in all colors- prints, checks, and solids. Your doll can use them with shorts, skirts, and under bibs too. You’ll see my dolls wearing lots of peasant tops, especially with the Backyard Bibs pattern like HERE, HERE, and HERE.
I found this small scale red and black checked fabric at Walmart. (I always wash my Walmart fabric with a color catcher before I use it just in case!) The Backyard Bibs is a quick and easy jumper outfit- and I cut the waistband on the diagonal for fun. Find the pattern HERE. This pattern is available in 5 popular doll sizes in my SHOP.
The blouse under the bibs is the Playtime Peasant Top. I used THIS TUTORIAL to add the ruffle at the neck. Remember to not attach it to your side seam or your won’t be able to put the bibs over the shoulder. See more Playtime Peasant Tops HERE and HERE. Purchase the pattern on its own (includes a skirt!) or bundled with the Backyard Bibs.
Add lace to a peasant top for the perfect holiday doll outfit.
