Peppermint Magazine’s Peplum Top by Emily from In the Folds is available for free download. The loose, flowing fit is lovely for warm Summer weather, which is when I made it, but I’m only getting around to writing about it now we’re into Autumn in Australia…
The fabric I used is from a fabric store in Malaysia and I believe it is a polyester blend of some sort.
The patten features shoulder panels which could look nice in a contrasting colour or pattern. But in this case, as it is quite a busy pattern, I just used the same fabric for all of it.
It came together easily and I used French seams for all of the seams. As for styling this top, it goes well with long, fitted pants, but with shorts makes me feel like I look a bit stumpy and emphasises my short stature. If I were to make this again, I think it would look very nice in a plain linen and I might reduce the amount of ruffles and maybe dropping the waistline would enable it to be styled better with shorts.
