Based on the Lace Collar Top(08/2012), I made this top without the lace collar, the colours of the fabric were bold enough for me without a collar attached. I tried to make the pattern completely symmetrical(failed in the back part of the peplum).
The fabric I used is from Dries van Noten, from an older collection. The fabric is a kind of cotton, not stretchy at all, so the zipper(invisible zipper in the back)is around 55 cm long.
The pattern was easy to use, no difficulties in this pattern. I might try to make the same one in a longer dress version soon!
