New peplum - lekala 4177

It's been really hard to find time to sew lately! The kids need me around all the time and the weather is fine so we are mostly outside. I did had an unexpected free afternoon this weekend and I couldn't miss the chance to sew something. It had to be something simple so I could finish it. I really loved wearing my 2 red peplum tops and the ease seamed generous en ought to try it in woven so I made a rayon version with long bell sleeves.
I do not like cap sleeves so I used the ones from New Look 6432. The long sleeves make it nice to wear at the office during the summer since air conditioning always make me want to stay away from short sleeves and this saved me the trouble of having to wear a jacket over. The color, fabric and ease also make it easy to wear during summer and not get to hot in it.
I wanted to try new ideas so I added  a new seam in the top part of the center front panel and inserted a ruffle in it.
All margins finished with the cover machine:


  1. Very beautiful blouse, Georgia! I don't like cap sleeves either (I have flabby arms!) Love the flared sleeves.

  2. What a beautiful blouse! Love the peplum and the sleeves!
