Though the styles definitely are worlds apart, I made a peasant style top to go with my zero-waste monpei pants. These are PJs so the goal is comfort, not style. I've already worn these PJs twice and they are definitely comfy. I look a little like an aging flying nun, but I am comfy. That's a good thing.
This top gave me a chance to try something I learned from blogger Off The Cuff: how to sew a "designer" casing for elastic. That little edge-stitching before inserting the elastic just makes all the difference at a neckline. It doesn't roll and makes nice even gathers. That idea is a keeper.
