Review for My Little Plumcake Peplum Top

Fall Style

My challenge for this review was to turn the Peplum Top by My Little Plumcake  into a fall outfit.  Success!  I am so happy with the corduroy and pumpkins, perfect for the pumpkin patch.  The cute skirt under the top is The Ruby Reversible Skirt, you will see more pictures of the skirt later.

I would consider The Peplum Top a beginner plus pattern because the bodice has a cut out opening in the back with a cute button closure.  I spent about 2 hours sewing this pattern - not too shabby for a top with this many details!  The bodice of this top is completely lined which means you don't have to have a serger to make it!

The pattern provides both fabric requirements and body measurements.  There are specific cutting directions so the pieces can be put together very easily.  The pattern pieces are nested together in size 12m-8 and print out in black and white on 15 pages.

The peplum Top is so versatile; it can be a sleeveless spring/summer top, or layered with a long sleeve shirt for a fall/winter look.  Your fabric choices will make the Peplum Top fit any season - anything from thin cottons to the corduroy I used will work.  One of my favorite aspects of the top is the sweetheart split bodice - you can mix and match different fabrics to create so many different looks.

My children have to wear a collar to school as part of their dress code, so I was so excited to see a pattern that included a perfect peter pan collar.  Score!  There aren't many patterns for girls with a collar, but the Peplum Top is perfect for school, church or the pumpkin patch.

The skirt you see peeking out under the top is the Ruby Reversible Skirt.  Isn't it cute?  This skirt is true to it's name, completely reversible.  I love that it can grow with my daughter because the tie at the waist makes it adjustable.  Again, just like the top, this is an all season skirt.  I layered it with some leggings for this fall outfit.

The instructions are very clear and easy to follow, and all of the pictures help you along the way.  

The most important thing about this top is that my daughter really likes it, and that doesn't always happen!

Happy sewing!
