Lexington , Kent...
I made this top using simplicity pattern 1693, version F. I had originally meant for it to be a swing tank but the fabric was much stiffer than it should have been and didnt fall correctly. Sooooo…. I chopped it in half at the waistline, put vertical darts in the bodice, and took it in 6 inches in the back. I put in some pleats and bob’s your uncle! A polka dotted peplum top! Pretty good for my second top. I even wore it for Easter! :)
