I'm really in love with peasant style shirts because they have a nice scoop neck and they are flowy, which makes me feel good because I hate tight things. Because of my hate for tight things, I have a ton of L and XL tees just hanging around my apartment. When I saw a peasant blouse-type tee on Old Navy, I knew I had to figure out how to make one. I'm posting the tutorial, even though I might try and sell some in this style on my etsy, because once I made them I couldn't STOP making them. I LOVE this tute and I hope you guys like it too- it's kind of an instant gratification type thing because it only takes a few moments. Also, I've done a men's dress shirt with this tutorial as well and it is almost appropriate for the Renn Faire, which is good cause I have no money for a costume!








I also wanted to share this with you- for all the Twilight fans out there. My friends and I have been coming up with other vampire movies vs Twilight slogans and I made my favorite into a Tee. It's a Lost Boys Reference and a take on those tourist tees. So it's the outline of Washington State and the slogan is "WASHINGTON: MORE VAMPIRES THAN SANTA CARLA". Other favorites include "Team Barnabas" (from Dark Shadows), "Buffy vs Bella", and "Cullens? No, you mean Collins" (again, Dark Shadows).

Aww pops! I'm glad I could help you!

Thanks, everyone, for all the awesome comments! I'm so glad everyone liked it. I'm addicted to this- I've stopped doing normal recons to my shirts because I love this one. (Okay, because I'm lazy and like quick things)
