a simple little peplum top

This is the third time I sewed a version of the Endless Dress by Jocole Patterns.  You can see the first two here and here.  Once again, this pattern was a quick and satisfying sew :)

This time I sized down to the 18 months width but kept the 2T length.  I also altered the sleeve and neckline slightly to get exactly the look I wanted.   Originally I was going to make a dress, but once I finished the bodice I thought it would look cuter as a peplum top.  So I drew up a half circle skirt to finish it.

The back is finished with Kamsnaps that match the little squares in the fabric.  There's really not too much else to say about this top since it's so simple :)  Surprisingly, it's one of my favorite things I've sewn lately and I can see it being worn quite often!

Are you ever thrown off by which things you sew end up being favorites and which things don't?  I know that I am :)  I think I may have to do a post sometime about which items end up being worn the most (and the least) in our house.  I think it may end up surprising even me!

  1. It is funny, sometimes the things you think are clear winners never get worn and the quick or unplanned sews are just lived in!

    1. And I never seem to be able to predict ahead of time what will be the favorites :)

  2. This turned out adorable. I love the snaps. And yes it'd be fun to see most/least worn post. :)

    1. I think I will do one sometime next week, but first I need to figure out what is actually worn the most :) I've made a lot, so some things never get worn more than once!
