Long live the peplum! Like I’ve said before, in Alaska, fashion is late. I still have a good year or two before people are tired of peplums! Don’t judge me!
Look how it emphasizes the waist! This is Burda 07-2015-114. There were several versions of this in the magazine. They had it with sleeves and as a dress also. Kristy from Lower Your Presser Foot made the sleeved, dress version and it’s really cute.
This was a very easy top to make. There are just four pieces to trace. For some odd reason, they want you to cut the back as two pieces and sew it together even though it’s straight. Kristy picked up on this and just put the piece of the fold. I didn’t because I didn’t realize there was no shaping until it was already cut.
There’s a front and back topstitched neck facing. Everything went together well. My only alteration was my standard one which is to add one inch between the neck and bust. I leave the armholes alone though. For some reason, all my torso-longness occurs in that area. Don’t that one things makes the bust points go to the right place, the waist sit at the waist level, and the hip region actually hit the hips.
How is everyone trucking along on their Burda Challenge??
