Bow Tie Peplum Blouse






I know I’m overdoing this peplum thing… but it’s just so figure flattering that I hope it becomes a classic rather than just a trend.






This is a new blouse design for my (hopefully soon-to-be launched) handmade clothing line.   

I used the standard-sized sloper, so its fit on me is not as perfect as my other creations made just for myself, but I think the gather in front bodice accommodates different figures. (I wrote about my fitting problem here.)



My pattern making skill is a bit rusty, so it took me several trials, but I’m pretty happy with the end result :)

  3. It's gorgeous! I also hope peplums are a keeper, they have always looked classic to me. It's nice to see so many different ones, especially with the pretty details you made.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I think peplums should stay in style for a while, too!! (if skinny jeans could, why not??)
