I’ve been wanting a peplum top for a few years now, but I never found that I liked that was in my budget. I’m kind of really cheap when it comes to buying clothes. I really don’t like spending more than $10 for a shirt (and I hate buying low-quality clothing). So I shop end of season sales where everything is really cheap. And for that reason, I have not come across a really cheap peplum top. 🙂
So I was really excited to try sewing Simplicity 1425 because now I could just make myself an affordable peplum top. I got the pattern on sale for $.99 when Hobby Lobby had Simplicity patterns on sale. Then I found some cute geometric blue & green stretch cotton fabric on clearance at Jo-Ann. And I was ready to sew my own peplum shirt.
