I have a little obsession with Peplum tops so when I got the opportunity to work with Seen and Sewn Patterns on the Parker Peplum Sewalong I was thrilled.
You can find the pattern here.
The pattern comes in 3 views, with peplum, without peplum and a short or long sleeve option. This pullover top is designed for knit fabrics and is a great project for a beginner seamstress but also a refreshing change if as an experienced seamstress you’re looking for a simple project.
I fold my fabric in 4 and cut front and back bodice together as they are the same pattern piece. Next the peplum and sleeve. I did add an inch to the bodice length.
Join the shoulder seams, then sleeves and add peplum to the bodice then sew side seams together. This took less than an hour for me to put together. I took the sides in about 2” on either side for a more fitted look. Next I turned the neckline about .5” and stitched to finish instead of using the neckband.
After being away from my sewing machine for awhile because I was remodeling my sewing room it was really good to get back into sewing with this make.
I didn’t have to make any adjustments to the back and it fit perfectly. This is usually a problem I have with patterns because I have what I call “a deep sink in my back”
The Parker Peplum is a super easy pattern and is very chic and comfortable.
Till next time,
Be original, show off your style!
