peplum top

Do you ever get that overwhelming feeling that you need something new hanging in your closet, yesterday? That was me last weekend, I just needed to sew something quick, simple, and satisfying.

I dug through my fabric stash, looking for a decent yardage of anything. I came across some olive green linen that was left over from my Lander Shorts (which I don’t seem to have blogged about?!). I had just enough for a Peplum Top by In The Folds for Peppermint Magazine.

I adore this design, the straps are wide enough that I can wear a decent bra, and the gathered peplum creates a very interesting silhouette.

I also love the sharp V at the back, it’s in direct contrast with the curved neckline on the front. I managed to squeeze this out of less than a meter of fabric, which makes the pattern a great stash buster!


It feels really good to be able to sew something up with fabric from my stash, it almost makes it feel like this top was free..?! Absolutely!
