Last year I took advantage of a spoonflower sale, it was buy a phat quarter get one free.
Since I only ordered a phat quarter I decided on a peplum top. I took rough measurements, which I shouldn't have because it came out shorter than expected. It became a peplum crop top. I was bummed out because I didn't have enough fabric to redo it. It didn't look bad but she isn't a fan of showing off her belly.
Here she is posing for me, we had gone to H&M and found the perfect rings that match her top. A mermaid, sea shell, octopus, starfish, and a dolphin. I tried to get her to show them off lol.
For the next peplum top I made sure to make a few adjustments on the pattern. I extended the length, lowered the armhole, and added extra wiggle room to the sides. The print I used were these watercolor watermelon. Perfect for the summer, and yes you guessed it her favorite fruit is watermelon lol.
I was happier with this peplum after I had made the adjustments. She really loved it and fit perfect. I still have more fun prints for more summer tops, but thought I would make the designs different. (two peplums would be enough.)
Nothing says summer like watermelons!
Here she is modeling her cute watermelon top. In case you were wondering about my thoughts on Spoonflower; I absolutely loved the prints, the colors were spot on, the fabric was soft, the stretch is not too much. I do however have to see how they hold up on several washes. I would definitely purchase from them again.
Hope you enjoyed my little peplums and gets you inspired to sew some summer tops. However if you don't sew and would love to see these adorable tops on my Etsy shop let me know and I'll add them!
