Mexican Peasant Blouse - Women's Tunic

With my pattern instruction booklet, you can make a dress, a peasant blouse or long tunic in a couple of simple steps.

If you can cut out rectangles and operate a sewing machine, you can own as many peasant blouses and tunics as you want. Why pay $50 for a cheaply-made, mass-produced tunic because it's trendy? Why dig through dozens of ugly blouses at a department store trying to find one nice cotton one with that romantic folk look? My 14 page downloadable booklet gives you the step-by-step instructions you need to make as many beautiful blouses and tunics as there are pretty pieces of fabric!

Because my booklet is based on taking your own measurements, rather than following a typical pattern, it will fit any body shape and is certainly a perfect style for any woman with its dainty peasant yoke top and graceful, floating fall. Puff sleeves are as light as a breeze and by choosing linen or cotton to make your tunic or blouse, you will have a perfect summer shirt, even in the hottest weather.

Peasant Blouse and Tunic Pattern

My instruction booklet can be used to make a full length Mexican dress, Mexican peasant blouse or tunic.

For the full-length gown, you measure down to the tops of your feet. For a tunic, simply measure to just above the knee. For a blouse, measure to the bottom of the hip. Add 1 inch for your hem allowance and you've got a versatile set of directions from which you can make 3 fantastic garments, as many times as you want to!

You can leave your Mexican Peasant Blouse or Women's Tunic plain, or you can use my embroidery design, bursting with colorful birds, flowers and ferns. My booklet teaches you the 2 basic embroidery stitches that this design is created from, so even if you are a beginning embroiderer, you can create the pattern. Or you can make up your own embroidery design using flowers, symbols or geometric shapes that have special meanings to you.

I sewed this full length dress in one evening, and I'm by no means a pro! I embroidered it in less than a week. Just think of the riches you can add to your summer wardrobe by learning the secret of making a simple peasant blouse or tunic. Plus, you get the fun of making garments that are unique as you are, and I think every lady deserves that pleasure.

Mexican Peasant Blouse and Tunic Fabrics

A white peasant blouse of cotton or linen is certainly an all-purpose garment. Cotton or linen tunics are amazingly comfortable, too. Cotton broadcloth or muslin are fairly solid fabric and you'll find it in both white and natural if you want that soft, light look. And obviously, white makes a very good background for embroidery work.

However, you may want to enliven your summer wardrobe with different fabrics or colors. Cotton batiste, organza and leno are semi-sheer fabrics and if you will be wearing your peasant blouse or tunic over a tanktop, they are a lovely choice. Batistes, organzas and lenos come in every solid color of the rainbow as well as pretty prints. How about a sage green peasant blouse or a red tunic top? The choice is yours!

If embroidery isn't your style, you can embellish your peasant blouse or tunic with lace trim, ribbons, beading, cross stitch, applique, crochet work or even fabric paint. If you are a crafty person, I'm positive that you'll have lots of great ideas once you see how quickly you can whip this garment together. For just $5.00, you will own my set of detailed, illustrated instructions from which you can make these classic folk garments for yourself, your mom, your friends. Believe me, everyone is going to want one once they see yours!
