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

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

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.
