When life gives you lemons...

Description

When life gives you lemons… then sew a peplum top!

This top is based on a blouse pattern #120 Burdastyle 11/2012. I used it for a summer top with cap sleeves. I lengthened it because I thought the waist is too high (I’m 66 inches tall).
The fabric was sold as decoration fabric but I knew from first sight that I’d sew a garment of it. There is a yellow lining inside.
I highly recommend this pattern, because the pleats have a nice fall and it’s good for fabrics with some body. I will definitely sew this again.
I made this beaded lemon brooch myself, too (see neckline).

More about this in my fashion- and sewing blog for women over 50 (all comments are welcome)
