Peasant Shirts & Dresses are the epitome of DIY Spring / Summer fashion for children. The super simple go-to style always yields great results, and is perfect for the beginning sewer. The first pattern I ever bought, still use, and continue to make about 5 – 10 of each year to keep up with my growing children…

Of course, it is always fun to add your own flair to a classic style.

Want to know how you can add a tie to the bottom of your peasant shirt? Click HERE.

You will need your own Peasant Shirt pattern to do this. I have always relied upon that very first Butterick B4118 pattern I purchased on that fateful day almost 5 years ago. But there are some great free on-line tutorials if you do a quick google search, such as this or this.

So go ahead and have fun with it! Dress up that Peasant Shirt or Dress and get ready for Spring!
