You may remember my black Swiss dot peasant blouse I made a while back. In keeping with my Summer peasant blouse series, the second blouse using Butterick 9768 has been made!

 This time I used a raw silk with the most adorable fruit and floral print ever!

 I am thrilled with how it came out. The weight of this fabric is perfect for this pattern. It’s also such a quick project!
