Another Riding peplum top here (my fourth) using Nani Iro Sen Ritsu double gauze. When Simon saw me trying it on, he said “that’s summery!”. Well, that’s good enough for me. It’s a size small with 3/4 seam allowance at the sides just to cinch it in a little bit. I french seamed the shoulder seams but got a bit lazy in the end and just overlocked the side seams. I followed Andrea’s narrow hem by serger tip and I like it! It really makes folding the hem easier, I’m not fond of using the iron to press tiny hems because I always seem to steam my fingers, ouch. I’ll definitely use this technique of hemming again but maybe not with a double gauze fabric because I think I sort of stretched the hem, good thing it’s a peplum and no one will notice it.
I bought 2.5 meters of this fabric so I even managed to make another top – a Zippy top and as with my previous tops, I skipped the facings and zipper and just used bias binding. I’ve cut it a month ago though so now I can’t remember if it’s a small or a medium haha, probably a medium. When I tried it on though, a purple flower was right on top of my left boob and I can’t stop looking at it. So it’s patch pocket to the rescue.
