Summer Peplum Tops

Last year I took advantage of a spoonflower sale, it was buy a phat quarter get one free.
The deal was too sweet to pass it by. I had been wanting to try their organic knit with cute prints since forever!

Since my daughter was outgrowing last year's summer tops I thought I would make her a few tops this year. So I choose several prints that she might like. One of them was a cute cartoon mermaid print. She absolutely loved this print, specially since she's a fan of mermaids.

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!

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show.

Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …
