Peasant Top/Ruffle Pants Outfit
I was inspired by this from etsy. So cute!
I found a free pattern for a peasant top here, and the pants are a free pattern from here. Peasant tops are pretty easy to make. You would think pants were too, considering they were the first project we made in my sewing class in college, but these here pants did NOT want to be made. They fought me the entire time! But I showed them whose boss and they got made despite their protesting. Okay who am I kidding. I'm an idiot and sewed the ruffles to the top instead of the bottom, not only that but I cut them out all wrong, among several other idiotic mistakes. I had to run back to hobby lobby and buy more fabric because I messed up so bad! Pathetic. As soon as I start thinking, "hey, I'm getting kind of good, maybe I should start my own Etsy account" something like this happens. I'll take it as a hint that I should NOT start up an Etsy store anytime soon.
Regardless, this is one of my favs on her. I love the shirt and I love the pants, even though they were a beast to make. I love the 3 ruffles, I would make her more pants like this but now I'm scared of them...ha. Sorry for the crappy pics, but you get the idea, she's definitely a little fashionista in this:
Price? Let's see: $2.50 for the shirt (1/2 of a yard of Hobby Lobby's fabulous fabrics) and $3 for the pants. Okay really $6 since a screwed up. Still, under $10 for this adorable outfit, not bad!
