Here’s my second take on Colette’s Hawthorn pattern, this time as a sleeveless peplum top! You can read more about my first version here 🙂 My original dress, which you can see below, was made before I started blogging, and love it, so thought I’d give it another go.
I wasn’t sure how I’d like the peplum so I went with some fabric in my stash, a color-shot aqua cotton. I only had a yard to work with- I had ordered this to make up my colorblocked top from last month’s challenge but the shipment was delayed, and long story short I needed to find something to make with the yardage I had. Without sleeves I had just enough for the Hawthorn.
I LOVE my Hawthorn dress but I’m not sold on the peplum for me. It’s just not my style. I did alter the collar a bit-it was a little to much- and really like this narrow version especially with the accent fabric underneath. Also for some reason this second version is a much tighter fit on me- I had to let out both of my side seams to be able to breathe! My first make still fits fine, actually a bit loose in the waist so I’m guessing its the fabric. I love the color though so I’ll probably make up a different top in this fabric!
