I know I say this a lot but I’m super excited to share a new pattern with you. This is my first tester with Sarah of Cali Faye Collection. I own two other patterns of hers, but have not gotten to sew them yet. That’s one the things that I love about testing, it forces me to stick to a schedule and finish up a project.
So back to the pattern. The January Peplum is a gorgeous top for girls. There is so much to love about this pattern. It seems like peplums are all the rage right now, and this pattern fits right in. Except with it’s own special features that make it stand out.
The first thing that will catch your eye is the most adorable shoulder contrast piece. It’s the perfect opportunity to play with the fabric in your stash because it becomes showcased and yet you don’t need a lot of fabric.
The next feature is one of my favorites, the high low sweep of the peplum. The peplum starts at the belly button and curves to cover the little tush.
Here you can really see that amazing touch. I have to say, it is what really caught my eye in the first place.
The back closure is an invisible zipper. Sarah has a fantastic way of installing the zipper that makes it a breeze. I have to admit that I ran out of invisible zippers. I thought there was more in my stash, but my recent creations used them up. It was too late to head to the fabric store so I ripped the zipper off a skirt that I don’t wear anymore. This is how you know you have become a crazy sewing person.
This top was so worth the skirt sacrifice! Check out the amazing movement of the peplum! C loves spinning in her top.
This is a fast sew with stunning results! It is fun to be able to sew up something quickly that is truly unique. I used Moda cotton for the top and a navy linen blend for the shoulders. The next one I make I think I’ll use the linen for the main and an eye catching print for the shoulders. Testing for Sarah was a pleasure and was one of the smoothest tests I have participated in. I made one muslin and it fit perfectly and has joined C’s wardrobe circulation.
For a limited time, there will be release sale for 30% off! The code to use is PEPLUM30. You can head over to here (affiliate link) to purchase your copy of the pattern. I don’t usually use affiliate links, but I honestly love love love this pattern. The construction is strong and the results are fantastic!
