A new Gloria Peplum top….

It is no secret among my sewing friends that the most frequent pattern I use is the Gloria by Peekaboo Patterns Shop. With three slender girls, it is helpful to be able to custom make comfortable knit play dresses for them.

Gloria Peplum Idelwild for Blog 022 WM

Gloria Peplum Idelwild for Blog 006 WMAs soon as I saw this new fabric line, I knew I would be purchasing some. This is the Idlewild Line by Pattern Anthology for Riley Blake. I purchased two other fabrics in the collection and cannot wait to show you the projects I have planned!

I had initially planned on making this a full length dress since it is cooling off quickly where we live and the girls need warm clothes for church. However, I accidentally sucked part of the bodice into my serger blade and decided to make a peplum top since my girls wear leggings almost every day in the winter! I think it looks great on my pre-tween.

While there is a circle skirt and peplum add-on for the Gloria, I typically use the skirt piece from the Twist and Shout for my oldest. She prefers her clothes to have a slimmer fit, so it is nice to have the full circle skirt option and the half circle option.

Check back soon for the mash-up I have planned with the rest of my Idlewild fabric!
