I adore this peplum top and it works a treat with this Cotton and Steel rayon called From Porto with Love. This lavender fabric is quite different to my usual colour choice and I was worried about how I would wear it, but I really like it. I don’t think I’ll be heading on a pastel fabric buying binge, but I’m happy to have an item or two. I wish these were seagulls on the fabric, because that would be funny, but I think these are storks. I’m cool with that though 🙂
The proportions of this top work so well with my other new obsession, my cropped trousers. Even though one of my kindy kids said my pants looked like clown pants, I love them. They are a looser style, which I guess isn’t very mainstream, but man, they are the bomb of practicality and comfort (and we all know my middle name is ‘practical’).
To highlight the shoulder seams, I added some of the selvage of the fabric as flat fold piping. Why not right?
And I really dig the V shaped back.
Surprisingly, I made a straight size and no modifications, which is rare in my sewing life. Now that I’ve had this success, I’m seriously considering jumping on board the Rushcutter dress bandwagon. Surely I can still use more dresses in my wardrobe right?
This kid kills me! Can’t even take a photo in peace! 🙂
