Yellow Peplum Top + Pattern Review – Simplicity 8136

Yellow Peplum Top + Pattern Review: Simplicity 8136- Rosy | Peña

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!

Pattern Description: Peplum Top with Cropped Pants or Shorts – Simplicity 8136

Pattern Sizing: 6-14, I cut size 8.

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 🙂

  1. I feel you on how much you admire Mimi. When I was a kid I used to design clothing and I was obsessed with 17 magazine and Teen magazine because I loved looking at the clothes. I learned to sew as a teenager and wanted to study fashion design and pattern making but I was scared to go to Miami or New York and honestly, I feel so dumb for not taking the risk. Anyway, Mimi was the person who inspired me to pick up sewing again for what I originally wanted, which was to make fashionable clothing, not just for alterations. Plus, she is Puerto Rican like me and it’s so cool to see a Latina come so far and build a business like she has. I think you are going places too. I have been loving all of your makes. Next year I plan on going to the conference, it’s a goal. I have to go at least once. Maybe I will see you there. I always feel like I miss out.

    1. I love hearing about your passion for design and fashion! Don’t think you are dumb for not taking the risk, I’ve heard similar things from others about wanting to pursue that career but being scared to go for it, so you are definitely not alone in that aspect! Mimi is amazing and I’m so glad more and more people are being exposed to her and her passion. She got me out of a tough time in my life through her tutorials and I’m very grateful for her to this day! I do plan on going next year! She said she plans on keeping it to a certain number of people so make sure you get the pre-sale tickets when she puts them up for sale! I’m sure next year’s conference will be even more awesome than this year! Hope to see you there for sure! 🙂
