Printed Peplum Top in Citron

Added Oct 1, 2012

by Jamie Lau

Brooklyn, New Yo...






This is one of the rare occasions where I’m actually sewing separates and not a dress! The Peplum Top pattern has been so popular on BurdaStyle that I just had to try it. I used this bright printed fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics in a citron and mustard floral motif. I love the cap sleeves on this top and the swing of the peplum!

For those of you in New York, I’ll be teaching a sewing class at 3rd Ward Monday nights starting October 8th using this sewing pattern. If you’re interested in taking the course, use the code BURDASTYLE25 and save 25% when signing up.

    That’s really zesty. I would be nice to see how the back/side way looks like!

      Thank you, Hélène! The back has an invisible zip and the peplum is a little bit longer in the back.
