Peasant Blouse - Adult Size Attempt #1

So, I am supposed to teach a sewing tutorial for MOMS Club next week and I decided to show how to do a peasant blouse...for toddlers.  Then, I thought, oh cute would it be if I made one for myself too.  Here is today's first attempt.

So, it's okay.  It was a little frumpy looking, so I added the elastic below the bust.  Then I needed to cover up the cinching fabric so I added the ribbon.  For my taste, the neck is a little too high.  So, I think I'll take it down for my next attempt.  Here's a better look:

Too conservative at the neck
So, bottom line:  Would I actually wear this as is?  Probably not.  Back to the sewing machine I go.  I still don't understand why it looks so cute on Layla and not on me.  Ha ha!
