OOTD

Happy Tuesday All and hoping your day is going smoothly.

 The weather in New York is a comfortable 75 degrees and loving it.  To make my day lively and flirty I donned Butterick 5709, the pattern has several variations of a pullover blouse with two different necklines, extended shoulders, elasticized seamed waist & center pleat on peplum.

I really like the simple silhouette of this top and bright print screams summer...



Definitely will be making another one and would like to pair a pencil skirt and a skinny belt with it....

until then.... here are some peplum inspirations.....

You look great Sheila! I am in love with peplums right now!

Sheila said...

Thank you Candice. I shied away from peplums thinking that it didn't work with my body type, but decided to give it a play and happy to say, this simple silhouette is perfect.

Great style and wonderful print Sheila.

Faye Lewis said...

So very cute Sheila. Had to run to the Butterick pattern drawer to see if I had that pattern. I did! You've inspired me once again. I'll be copying you on this one.

Nice top and I love the print. I just completed a peplum top myself. Had the same thought about the style, but remembered that I made this style when it was popular before and I loved it.

Irene said...

This top looks absolutely wonderful! Thank-you for all that "peplum inspiration" - definitely need to give it a think.

Patty said...

Love this one...great pairing of fabric to pattern!

Sheila said...

Thanks Ladies.

Faye: It's a pattern that I picked up initially for the cross-over bodice and afterwards decided to try the round neck version. Glad you have it and looking forward to your version.

Necie: I made a peplum about 3 years ago and it was a hot mess, being short waisted and not knowing how to adjust the pattern at that time the garment closely resembled a tutu and from thereon vowed I would stay away from peplum tops.

Now that I have some idea of fitting, I did an FBA, which also lenghtened the bodice and love that the peplum sits at my natural waist.

One glam note I should've of followed was going with a skinny belt instead of the wide belt.

Your top is absolutely beautiful, I love your fabric choice, and I love #2 of the first inspiration and #1 of the second.

Sheila said...

Thank you Aminat.
