Hello Beauties! Happy Tuesday, I hope everyone is having a GREAT week so far! I’m really excited about today’s post! Mostly because I’m finally getting around to writing a blog post on a pattern from one of my favorite designer/public figure/idols! Mimi G! I could serisouly go on about how amazing she is and how much her radiance has change my life but since I don’t want to keep you all day! I will just say that if you haven’t discovered her yet, GO! 😉
The peplum top turned out amazing, but it was a bit of a trial with this beauty only because I had less than a yard of fabric to work but I REALLY wanted to make it happen! So, I did not line the peplum and shortened the front and back peplum pieces by 3″. For the lining of the bodice I used 2 yellow fat quarters that I picked up for about $2! All this combined totally worked! Thank goodness! 🙂 Pattern Review Below, Enjoy! Also, a DIY Tutorial is coming soon on the Skinny Leopard Clutch in the photos! 😉 XOXO!

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes 🙂
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes! & Mimi has a video tutorial on Simplicity’s youtube channel to help you through it, here!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the peplum and the summery feel of the top! Also this can be made up in several different fabrics which I always appreciate! 🙂
Fabric Used: Stretch Cotton Poplin
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I took 3 inches off the length of the front and back peplum pieces. I also omitted the sash, if I sew up a dressier look with this pattern I will definitely add the sash!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? For sure! The designer has video tutorials on her patterns and she gets you through quick and painless! 😉 Not to mention her designs are awesome!
Conclusion: Summer must have if you love a good peplum 🙂
