Making Modest Clothing: Peasant Tops

Posts contain affiliate links.

Have you noticed that the trends in women’s clothing are becoming more revealing and less modest? Are you having a difficult time finding tops that aren’t too tight . . . or too clingy . . . or too low-cut?

Maybe it’s time to start sewing! With some basic sewing skills, you can sew a beautifully modest wardrobe that is both affordable and attractive.

The peasant top is one of the quickest and simplest styles to sew. Cool and comfortable for summer wear, it is easily adapted for a custom look.
