Sewing Double-My Colette Hawthorn Peplum Top

Sewing Double- Colette Hawthorn Peplum- Sew Pomona

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.

Hawthorn Dress Sew Pomona

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!  Be sure to stop by my blog, Sew Pomona, to see & read more about this make!

  2. I think it looks great! But I know what you mean about these kind of tops…. they don’t always seem so wearable when you sew them up. I’ve been meaning to make a Hawthorn blouse as well…. not sure what the outcome will be!

    • Thanks Tanya! I think the big thing with a peplum is if it matches your style- not so much for me- though I do think it’s pretty. Can’t wait to see your version!
