Workhorse: Simplicity 1699

There are some garments in my wardrobe that are in heavy rotation and this peplum top is one of them. It just looks good with everything. I particularly like it with a cropped jacket or cardigan with the peplum peeking out the bottom.

My Review: 

Pattern:  Simplicity 1699
Fabric used: Ponte Di Roma in ivory ( I’m a little disappointed that it has pilled so quickly) 
Instructions:  So simple!! Especially with no sleeve to set in… raglan sleeve for the win!
Changes I made: I didn’t make any changes to the pattern but I did omit the collar. It wasn’t my thing….
                          Oh!… and of course I used an invisible zip instead of a lapped…
Repeat worthy? Yes. I really want to make the longer sleeve version for winter!

Top: self made Pants:Target Jacket:thrifted Shoes: Franco Sarto
This was such a quick and easy make and I really love that the peplum isn’t too overwhelmingly poofy… it has just the right amount of flounce…
