I think that this question has been asked here before, but I couldn't find it in the search. I am looking for a really easy pattern for a peasant shirt. I am pretty sure that there is one floating around that uses just basic rectangles for the shirt and the sleeves, and then adding elastic to the neckline and sleeves.
Anyone??? PLEASE!!! :yawn:
I am looking for something like this:

I am making Clara's pirate girl costume and need to make this shirt for it. Thanks!!!

I have two patterns that I've used for a peasant top.

Simplicity 5695 which looks most like the picture (I shorten it to top length instead of dress)


simplicity 5222 (I don't like the directions for the neck on e so I do it a bit different)
