How are you all doing? I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I sure did spending time with my sewing machine. I actually got a lot of sewing done this weekend maybe it's because I realized my summer break is over in less than a week...*sniffles*. I am also back to posting just once a week, don't worry I am not going any where once my school start, I just won't be sewing at all. But I have have lots of items that I have already made and will be sharing for the next 2-3 months.
On to today's post, I am sew exited to sharing one of my latest makes: it's a black and cream striped peplum top. I made it using Honig Design "Athena" Top, if you remember I made her "Basel" dress last December, see post HERE. I am in love with this PDF pattern, it was so easy to put together after printing it at home and it's a pretty simple pattern to make as well. I made mine using a stretch cotton fabric and I really like the way it turned out. I have literally worn it about 3 times since I made it and I have paired it with a pencil skirt, jeans and even shorts. I love the classic yet fun and modern silhouette. For this look, I paired it with a bold colored pencil skirt that I also made using Sew Over It "Ultimate Pencil Skirt" pattern but I reduced the length by about 4 inches. Honig Designs is one of my favorite Indie pattern designer, I am so looking forward to more of her designs in the future.
P.S: For those that sew,  I have a pattern review below...:)
Pattern Review: Honig Design "Athena" Top
Pattern Description: It is a close fitting woven peplum top with angled symmetrical pleats detail.
Pattern Sizing: It came in a size 1-9, and I cut a size 6 based on the finished garment measurements.
Fabric Used: Striped Stretch Cotton Sateen from Mood, HERE
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, super easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I absolutely love the pleated detail in the front, plus the fit is so on point too.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? None in terms of the design, I did use a fabric that has some stretch to it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes & Yes! I already have another one cut out for later. I would absolutely recommend it, in my opinion it is the best fitted peplum top pattern I have made till date. It is definitely in my TNT pattern stash.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!
