Well, you certainly didn't see it here first! This is the pattern of the week! Vogue 8815, aka the Peplum Top pattern. Jorth has made it. Colette from Sew Tessuti has made it. Twice! Erica B has styled it to the max. Mimi G totally rocked it. Anyone else?
I originally purchased this ponti for a dress but wasn't quite sure which one to go for. Then I saw this pattern on Voguepatterns.com and quickly made my decision. I am in the process of making a pencil skirt to go with this top for a peplum "dress" look, but I couldn't wait to wear this top! I love the colour and the style is fun and a bit flirty.
I switched the sleeves for the cap sleeves from Vogue 8787 and lined the sleeves and bodice. I cut a size 18 (yay!) and graded the sides in by an extra inch at the armhole. I could possibly drop the bust dart by an inch in my next version. Yes, there will be another one (or two, or three!).
Pattern: Vogue 8815 (sleeves from Vogue 8787)
Fabric: Blueberry Ponti from Tessuti Fabrics plus matching lining
Alterations: Lined sleeves and bodice, substituted sleeves from Vogue 8787 for a capped sleeve,
Have you jumped on the Peplum Top bandwagon yet?
