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!
- Pattern brand/name/number: Peplum Top by In The Folds for Peppermint Magazine (it’s a free download!)
- Style, size: Size D
- Fabric: 100% olive linen left over from my Lander Shorts (originally from The Remnant Warehouse)

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!
