Well good morning to you all. Pictured above is a peasant blouse with my own creation, the ice cream cone applique. This blouse is McCall's 6313. That versatile pattern includes a blouse, dress, peasant blouse, and leg ruffle pieces. My take on the peasant blouse was just a way to make this one not look like others. The fabric is 100% cotton in a micro-checked gingham in pink and white. The darling little denim cargo shorts were store-bought. I just added the little pink ribbons to each pocket flap. To see this pattern's difficulty rating, and the matching head band, follow the link below my signature.

Ruffles & Stuff. I chose to leave off a lower band and two front pockets. This 100% cotton fabric came from Hobby Lobby some years ago, and was called Flower Power. The round yoke is made of 100% cotton in Robin's Egg, from Kona Cotton. A very pretty pattern that is not too complicated to construct. The fasteners are two snaps at the left shoulder. That large white button is just for decoration, so no button holes required. My pattern difficulty rating is:
