Tutorial: Button down peasant shirt refashion

Dora from Show Tell Share shows how she refashioned a button down shirt into a peasant blouse.  She removed the button placket from the bottom portion of the shirt, but kept it at (and the  collar) at the top.  A little bit of gathering under the button placket keeps it all aligned and gives a little extra ease.  You can keep it plain, or you can add decorative stitching.  (Great way to make use of those fancy stitches on your machine!)  Get the tutorial.
