Lekala 4177: Peplum top remake





There are so many peplum tops in the shops lately and I love them!
A couple of changes from the last version, heightened the midriff band and lengthened the peplum plus made the neckline lower. Makes the proportions nicer and its such an easy top to wear I made it in grey and purple!
I'm still stuck on a twin needle sewing thing so I did it around the neck band, arm bands and hemline.
 


The fabric out of my stash, its just a cheap ponte knit from Lincraft. It pills really quickly but is a nice weight and stretch.

  4. Ihave a peplum-top pattern in my patternbox I haven't used yet, perhaps I should give it a go - yours are really great! Funny how fashion can differ from country to country. I too have seen a lot of peplum tops, but that in magazines, they haven't really hit the stores and people on the street yet.

  5. Your tops look really comfy and stylish! Not sure I am up to your level in stretch stitching yet, but this design is certainly worth thinking about!
