I love peplums, I never wear peplums but I adore them. There is something flirty and sweet and a lot sexy about a peplum top. But being a girl with curves peplums are hard. That why when the charming April Rhodes asked me to test her newest pattern The Riding Peplum and Peplum Party Dress, I couldn’t say no. Guess what It’s Perfect for ladies with curves. The slightly longer bodice and high low hem make it great, it covers what I want, doesn’t lay directly on the widest part and looks awesome.
I can’t wait for spring when I can wear it with capris and cute flats. I also think it would look awesome with shorts in the summer! Seriously I am in love with this top.

Now Let’s talk about the Peplum Party Dress. JADORE! Seriously guys I love this dress! It spins when you turn it bounces when you walk and this Tula Pink Fabric is the best score I ever got at 4 dollars a yard! (don’t hate) I know that I will be making a few more of these. Both of these patterns came together in a snap! With NO ZIPPERS! that right ladies it is a perfect beginners dress! (any ladies in PDX who wants to sew one but is afraid to hit me up we can schedule a private lesson!)
Holy wind Batman! See what I mean about the twirl factor.
