I bought this fabric as a remnant from Nerida Hansen in Australia. It sat in my stash for quite a while because it was a much thinner cotton than I had anticipated, and I also wasn’t sure if it was very ‘me’.
I’m quite a way outside of the Papercut Patterns maximum hip size of 46.5″ (close to 10″ inches away), and because I loved the coat so much I got in touch with the company to ask if they thought my measurements would work with the coat pattern. They said yes, of course, since they were trying to sell me a coat pattern and off I went.
These Ethel Designer Pant from StyleArc (which I purchased as a set) sat in my ‘almost finished’ sewing box for over a year, after I deemed them not very successful.
After some unsuccessful purchases from them (back when they didn’t include finished garment measurements), I try to be quite savvy about picking patterns where it doesn’t matter that I need to grade at least a couple of sizes between my top and bottom.
I had enough fabric leftover from my Scribble Rayon Adeline to make the peplum with an extra long frill, which makes it long enough to style with pants that aren’t super high-waisted.
Have you read this article on the difference between a frill & a flounce? Neither had I until I was looking for how to describe the bottom part of the peplum!Continue reading “Scribble Peplum top”
