Black peplum top

I love this top! Definitely a fashion staple in my books.  I made this black Peplum top using stretch drill fabric. It is a good fabric to work with and the sewing machines seem to love it. I used just one yard of fabric, by some miracle, to make the top and it actually has a full circle peplum. I was pressed for fabric so there was unavoidably a seam down the centre front. To mask this I simply added a 1 1/4 inch wide mock placket down the front and it turned out to be a nice detail for this black top. The back of the top is fitted with a long invisible zipper for a nice and neat finish. The neckline is faced and stabilised by double stitching.I did use a pattern to make the bodice only. Vogue options V8766 (Version D) I changed the shape of the neckline but the pattern was a good starting base to work with.

I hope you like it! Blessings to you!


  1. Superb! Maybe you can try it with leather on the bottom..? I really like your projects btw.
