Description

Over at Mood Fabrics I fell for this black animal print flocked taffeta. Taffeta…it is what all my vintage loving swishing swirly skirted dreams are made of, however I felt this taffeta with the flocked animal print walked on the wilder side. And when I ran across the Burda Pleated Peplum Top (11/2012 #120) I envisioned a modern quirky nod to Sandy from Grease.
When laying out my pattern I made sure the fabrics flocking complimented the design I striped the center front with the print as well as the sleeves. I also adjusted the peplum with its inverted pleats to also show off the flocked print and maintain less pile in the inverted areas to avoid any excess midsection bulk.
I fully lined my peplum top in a deep purple lining. The lining also allows me to turn up the sleeves and form contrast cuffs for a less formal look.
