Emmie Peasant Top
Emmie is a modern take on the peasant top trend. While it’s simple enough to sew in an afternoon, you’ll learn some helpful new construction tips along the way. The unique notch neckline
is elasticized and finished with four hook and eyes at the center front. Pick a lightweight, flowy fabric, and put your trim stash to use by taking advantage of optional ribbon or cording ties.
