Peplum Sweetheart Dress

Added Jan 20, 2011

Lawrence, Kansas...






I used Simplicity 2282 with the cap sleeves and peplum. I also changed the neckline from a high crew to a sweetheart. There is a slightly difficult side insert and I believe adding the peplum increases it, I had to rip out the seams quite a few times before I came up with something that was satisfactory, and it made the front of the dress not lie as well as the picture on the envelope. Next time I won’t do the peplum I think, though that was why I bought the pattern. I’ll also make the back a bit lower too, it seems absurdly high.

I’m really glad I used this fabric though… I have had it for a long time but the print is so big I didn’t know what to do with it.

    I love the peplum! Good change on the neckline – I’ve got that pattern, but the neckline is so high!

      Yeah, I noticed that even though I think it’s been out for a year there weren’t any reviews on Patternreview.com yet, which seemed so odd!
