Marigold Peplum

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.

    Just lovely! Love it with jeans, almost like a t-shirt but so much more respectable. I’ve been looking for some nice white fabric, I’ll have to give the RK voile a try.

    Oh this is amazingly beautiful!!! I hadn’t really considered making the top version of this ….until now! I love my dress so much, especially in voile…yes voile is really the perfect fabric for this pattern, right?! I might have to just make myself a “plain” white version as well! Love this! :)

    It’s so pretty! It works so well in that fabric and I love the relaxed vibe of the loose waist. I’d never heard of this pattern company and I’m very impressed by this design.

    What a lovely flowy top. I’ve been eyeing this pattern for the wonderfully feminine neckline. This looks like it’ll be a great blouse for summer.

    So I’m about to attempt this top in a really light fabric, almost chiffon. I see that you left off your elastic. Do you like it that way? Do you like the seam there with no elastic? I’m wondering if I should just lengthen the top piece instead of sewing a separate piece on.
