Blue Rose Peplum Top


I've got one more summer make to share before it actually starts to stay cold here in Texas (and yes I'm still wearing my summer makes).  This one is New Look 6511 with four different adorable views.  I decided to go with view B and I cut out size 12.  Even though this pattern is simple in construction,
I think it can be varied in so many styles depending on the fabric that is chosen.  For this look I wanted something that was great for summer and spring and that also can be dressed for a casual day look or and evening out look.  I'll talk more about how I styled each in a minute. But first, on to my review:

New Look 6511 Pattern Review:

Fabric used - A cotton Gertie fabric from Joann's (with blue roses).

Alterations made - First I added 1 inch to the length of the peplum.  When I sewed the seams at the shoulders, sides and peplum, I used a 1/2 inch seam allowance.  I think because of these slight adjustments I probably should have cut out size 14 but these alterations still worked for me. For the back closure I used a thin elastic for the button loop.

Sewing skills used - Gathering fabric, attaching a button closure and sewing bias tape to neck and armholes.

Easy or difficult - This pattern was definitely easy, great for beginners learning more about the skills above.

As for how I've styled this, for these photos I went for a more casual look but pairing with light denim capris and lace up sandals.  I have also worn this on a night out for dinner with my girl friends pairing this top with white denim pants and brown wedges with bold gold jewelry.

How you do you like to wear peplum tops?
