    This is a type of dresses which can be worn by adults and teen age girls as top. Dresses can be stitched for girls following the same method.It can also be a jabla for small babies.By using your creativity you can stitch many types of dresses.One more interesting thing is you can do smocking around the neck and and sleeves .I have given a few sites looking at which you will understand in how many types of variations you can stitch this peasant top


    Bodice front and back

    A-B= ½ shoulder+¼”
    A-P =length of the top +1½’
    A-O = 1/12th chest
    A-H =1½”
    A-L =1/12th chest+1½”
    A-C =¼chest-1”
    Draw perpendiculars from C and P
    C-E= ¼ chest +1”+½”
    C-D =A-B
    Join B-D
    Mark F on the line B-D such that D-F =1”
    Join O-H and O-L back and front neck shapes as shown in the figure. Mark G such that O-G = 1”
    Join G-F and produce. From the point E draw a perpendicular E-N to the line G-F produced.
    Produce E-N to M such that N-M =E-N
    Shape E -F-G as shown in the figure LIPK is extra material 2” wide for gathers in front. And HIPK is extra material 2” wide for gather at the back. Width can be increased or decreased according to taste.

    sleeve

    A-B= ½ shoulder+¼”
    A-O = 1/12th chest or to taste
    A-H =1½”
    A-L =1/12th chest+1½”or to taste
    A-C =¼chest-1”
    Draw perpendiculars from C
    C-E= ¼ chest +1”+½”
    C-D =A-B
    Join B-D
    Mark F on the line B-D such that D-F =1”
    Join O-H and O-L back and front neck shapes as shown in the figure. Mark G such that O-G = 1”
    Join G-F and produce. From the point E draw a perpendicular E-N to the line G-F produced.
    Produce E-N to M such that N-M =E-N
    B-R = sleeve length +2"
    R-Q = sleeve width+1/2"
    Join M-Q.
    Shape M-F-G as shown in the figure
    SRTO is extra fabric ,O-T =S-R= 2" wide for gathers. It can be varied according to taste.

    Stitching peasant top

    Join front and back of the bodice to right and left sleeves as given 1-2 to 3-4,5-6 to 7-8,9-10 to 11-12 and 13-14 to 15-16.Attach 1½” bias binding to the neck keeping right sides together .Fold over and stitch .This is the casing to pass draw string. Make a small button hole in middle of the front to pass draw string. Fold over the edges of the sleeves to make the casing for elastic, Pass elastic of the length equal to sleeve round and secure the ends to the sides of the sleeve by 2 or 3 back stitches. Join sides of sleeves and bodice .Fold the bottom by ½” and stitch. Pass a draw string hrough the neck casing

    Hi
    I wish you and all our friends also a very happy new year!

    Material needed changes according to the size, gathers you need and the width of the material.It is better to prepare a paper draft and Place on any material you have in your home and estimate the material needed.Usually for adults material needed will be equal to length of the bodice x2 + length of the sleeves.
