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!

Boxy Charm/February Unboxing+Review

It's BoxyMail Time, this month's theme is Galaxy Glow. It is definitely giving me all the Space Jams vibes. If you aren't familiar with BOXYCHARM it is a beauty subscription for $21 a month. Usually you get 5-6 full size products! Based on the theme I thought that the products were going to be vibrant, glowy, or have a neon effect. There were so many variations on their IG that I was not sure if I was going to like this month's box. The five items that were included in my box were a highlighter palette, shimmer veil, eye pencil, glitter, and trio brush set.  (Disclaimer: this review is NOT sponsored by BOXYCHARM, I bought this with my own money, all opinions are mine.
