More Riding peplum tops

It’s been quiet here for the past 2 months, it seemed a long time ago now but I had a nice long holiday in the Philippines and Cambodia and I had something like LASIK (they call it RELEX here in Singapore) done to my eyes. So no more contact lenses for me ever :)! I’ve done some sewing, mostly basic stuff because after a year of sewing, the chicken in me still avoid anything that involves zippers and buttons and linings. So here are two more Riding peplum tops from April Rhodes, I still used Size S but unlike my Chambray Riding peplum top, the fit is not tight at all, I even had to pinch a bit on the sides of the yellow and blue geometric top. I got the fabric from Spotlight for 16 dollars per meter (I bought 2 meters and made one more shirt out of it), the label said it was linen and rayon. It’s very light and I like the drape, it’s just that a slight breeze can lift the peplum up so I have to remember to hold it when I’m outdoors.

This next top was actually my first Riding peplum top but I only got to take photos of it now. The fabric is Nani Iro Nuance Muji wata double gauze from Miss Matatabi, and I love it! It’s soft and comfortable and the blue and gray colours look amazing, this is one of my most worn handmade tops.

  1. Cute. I need to get this pattern! I wasn’t sure if I could wear peplums with shorts, but I love the way it looks on you! This pattern is definitely on my to buy list!

    • Thanks Teresa! It’s too hot and humid here in Singapore so all my tops should go with shorts hehe. Looking forward to see your peplum πŸ™‚

  2. I feel the same about the Staple Dress, so easy to make (although everything always takes me so long because I faff around a lot!). I love how you use contrast bindings on all of them. Also, I would love to have laser eye surgery but I am tooooo scared! But everyone I know who has had it has only good things to say about it. I would love to be able to wake up one day and see everything clearly!

    • I think getting my eyes zapped is one of the best things I’ve done in years! It’s incredible. It was really fast too, not even 30 minutes. Do it! πŸ™‚
