Hey all! It’s been quiet here on the blog, but man oh man has life been busy lately! We have been spring breaking, growing our little zoo here, and just in general feeling pretty darn tired every night when it is time to sleep!
I’ve been sewing a lot lately and have a bit of a back log of projects to share with you. I’ll start with this white shirt, it’s the Marigold pattern by Blank Slate Patterns, which has so many options, but I chose to sew it with cap sleeves in the peplum length. I debated what fabric to sew this pattern with, but landed on the lightest little Robert Kaufman voile in white. I knew this fabric was super lightweight and super sheer, but I also knew that is exactly the type of shirt I would reach for in a store, perfect to layer over a cami!
I made just a couple changes to Melissa’s pattern. I french seamed all of the seams, you know, just so it looked nice and tidy inside and out! (The above photo shows you the innards….pretty huh?) I also omitted the elastic at the waist. I wanted this to be a loose flow-y peplum.
I love how this top turned out! Here’s a quick glimpse at the details:
Pattern :: Marigold, size small
Fabric :: Robert Kaufman voile
