Olivia, the ladies peasant top sewing pattern, is a simple, but beautiful sew. Drafted with a gathered boat neck that sits between off-the-shoulder and a regular neckline, Olivia shows off your collar bones and neck, but still gives you a bit of extra coverage, resting gently around the décolleté.
The traditional pillowcase-style top is comfy, loose-fitting, and floaty around the body. Your fabric and sleeve options can take Olivia from a cool summer top (worn with denim cut-offs and sandals) to a transitional piece for spring and fall, and even a winter warmer.
