Olivia, the ladies and girls’ peasant top sewing pattern, is a simple, but beautifully lovely sew. Drafted with a gathered boat neck that sits between off-the-shoulder and a regular neckline, Olivia is a traditional pillowcase-style top and is comfy, loose-fitting, and floaty around the body. Your fabric and sleeve options can take Olivia from a cool summer top to a transitional piece for spring and fall, and even a winter warmer.

  1. Katie Kennedy

    I’m really delighted with the Olivia! It’s a simple peasant top that is super comfortable to wear and I’ve been hunting for a top like this for my wardrobe. The French seams (including the sleeves!) are a beautiful professional finish and the directions are very easy to follow. The elastic gathers look sweet, especially on the sleeves, and I think it would look so pretty in some embroidered fabric. This is a great garment for showing off some very drapey woven and I’m happily wearing my new airy top in hot weather.

  2. Geneviève Ouellet

    This top is really adorable! I love the versatility of this top; it’s perfect for all seasons and all occasions. And such an easy sew. Love it!!!

  3. Jess Mullens

    Lovely easy pattern for year round! Simple construction and easy to read instructions. I love the french seam directions as well. Can be made with both knit and woven is a double plus in my book, so many possibilities! Now available in ladies makes for a perfect Mommy and me set <3

  4. Keeley Jones

    This is a really great pattern and it came together quickly and easily! I love the fact that you can get drastically different looks just by choosing a different fabric base. Perfect for Summer and even transitioning to Autumn/Winter!

  5. Ellen Valarida

    I enjoyed sewing up the Olivia! It was so easy and quick to make. Many more will be in my wardrobe.

  6. Danielle Arthur

    Such a sweet, timeless pattern with great instructions. I love that following the hidden seam instructions, the item looks as beautiful inside as out! I sewed up 2 new Olivias along with bloomer shorts (using the bottom half of the Teatime romper pattern) as pyjama sets for summer and they are perfect being cool and comfortable.

  7. Dani Arthur

    I am loving the Olivia pattern so much, I have sewn myself up 3 in a few weeks! My daughter also has a few and loves that we can match together. A lovely simple sew with great instructions. Anyone could do it! It is so great that it can be done in a knit (stretch) or woven (non-stretch) fabrics!

  8. Anna Rozwadowska

    I needed a top for a photo session with my daughter and pumpkins. Couldn’t find anything suitable in her wardrobe. I looked through my stash and found some double gaze in a color which is definitely not my favorite. I loved how it turned out. The Olivia is a really quick sew! I took about an hour to complete it! Definitely doing some more in the future!

    The Olivia is a simple pattern that makes such an elegant shirt. I found the pattern very easy to follow and made my shirt quickly. It also is a very comfortable pattern it’s loose fitting and hangs on the body in a flattering way.
