Sew Chaotically! ~ Peplum Top for MMM 2019 Day 20!

I've been waiting for a bit of linen to make into this top for some time.  When I found this fairly heavy nubby linen at Fine Fabrics in Atlanta, I knew it would be perfect!

While a lighter weight fabric would be pretty in this little Peplum Top (a free pattern by In the Folds!!!  BTW!!!) I love how the more substantial linen works for this one!
The pattern calls for a super cute v-neck in the back, but I made this one with a simple curved crew neck in the back.
Notes on the changes I made include using bias binding for finishing the neck, arms and hem and adding 3 1/2 inches to the bodice portion as the top is quite cropped.  I flat felled all seams.  This fabric was a pleasure to work with and a little effort on the details made it special.

Thanks to Peppermint Magazine and In the Folds for this great pattern!!!  I love my top!!! Sew Chaotically! - les


  1. I love all these new clothes!!!!!

  2. Thanks, Jeanne. Some are new makes, some not so much. But this little top would look great on easy peasy and the pattern is FREE!!!
