summer heat peplum

This is a fun pattern. Its the Sonja dress as found on the burdastyle website. I have been wanting to try to make a peplum top. Here is my version. I used a seersucker material with fine silver threads. Perfect for summer. I added the lining which was a great find. Its a taffeta which also has such a nice weave; it looks like the bark of a tree. Kinda hard to see in the photo. I think I needed to add lining as facing is too see through with this application. Also to finish it as best as I could, I made some bias tape in the same material of the shell.

It really came together. I think I am ready now to try cutting and sewing my more expensive materials. I still found this project helpful as I can’t seem to get enough practise with fit and with zipper applications
to lining. I sometimes sew the shell to the lining.

It is really funny because I do it all the time!

Material Notes

cotton seersucker & taffeta for lining. Zip -regular style applied in invisible method.
