An autumn peplum topApril 17, 2015
Following on from my late posting of this dress (that was made six months before I photographed it), this top is finally on the blog after I made it around about the same time.
So here is Issie in a top I made last spring that she is now wearing in autumn. I made the pattern up. It is a top version of this yellow dress. Like the dress, this top is reversible. Isabella was a bit chilly and not in the mood for swapping it over for the photos, but you can see a glimpse of the under fabric in some of these pics. The blue floral was in the clearance section of Miss Matatabi a while back and I thought it was sweet. It is super soft and was really lovely to work with. It is not in stock any more and I have forgotten the name of the fabric.
The neckline is finished with orange bias binding and extends to create ties. I overdid the size of the flutter sleeves a little but I think the top still looks good.
Isabella has finally stepped over the threshold into becoming a wearer of jeans (since her 'big' and adored cousins wear jeans, she now thinks they are a good idea). I hope this doesn't mean she will stop wearing dresses any time soon!
Love this photo!!
