If you'd like to expand your wardrobe either for work, casual or play, try an easy blouse that takes little time or skill to make. There are several classic blouses that are simple to cut out and sew which are perfect for beginners. As you improve your skills, choose blouses that include buttons and more complicated, fitted seams.

Peasant Blouse

A fashion classic, the peasant blouse only calls for two pieces to cut out and sew together. It is gathered at the neck with a drawstring which only requires you to make a simple fold-over seam in which to thread a matching drawstring. Peasant blouses are cool and breezy, and make an excellent project for summer fashions and girl's play and school wear. Peasant blouses do not require learning how to button hole nor do they call for any fittings as they are quite roomy. They only need to be made in the recipient's general size. These blouses can be made of inexpensive cotton fabric and look stellar in calico or prints.

Bohemian Blouse

The Bohemian Blouse is in the same fashion category as a peasant blouse. It uses a circular yoke that's cut out with a neck hole and a gathered body. It only requires two seams, hemming the bottom and no sleeves. The sleeves are part of the gathered body and the arms fashionably peek out of the gathered blouse through slits on the side. This easy-to-sew blouse makes an elegant statement or can be paired with a carefree skirt to make an outside-the-box fashion statement.
