Simple Blouse Variation: Faux Peplum

8:07 AM

Here is another super easy Simple Blouse variation: a faux peplum. I think a peplum is just fun and flirty. 

Trace the front and back pattern pieces on separate paper. Mark a waistline across both pieces. Cut 7-10 slashes stopping a the waistline mark. Spread the slashes open creating as much fullness as you want. You can retrace your pattern after you've spread it out if you want to. I just did the spreading right on the fabric, pinned it, then cut out. That's it! Just stitch it all together.

  1. LOVE it! Wish I had a cute shape to wear something like that.

  2. This looks like a completely different blouse pattern, than THE "simple blouse pattern. Do you have a pattern for this one? I love the neckline shaping. Thanks, Gail

    1. Hey Gail,

      This top is based on the simple blouse pattern. I traced the original pattern and just drew in a different neckline.


Thank you for stopping by, we love to hear from you!
