I omitted the collar from my design in order to add more focus to the peplum feature of the top. I created the peplum by measuring the circumference of the bottom of the bodice and doing a little math to calculate the radius of the circle I needed to cut out of the fabric. I then used my serger to sew a rolled edge hem on the bottom of the peplum.
The final step of my Flip was to attach the sleeves. Again, my goal was to style the final top with a 1950’s feel to it, so I shortened the sleeves to be 3/4 length and then attached a simple cuff band to the bottom.
That’s it! It was so easy to make these alterations to the Violette Fields Thread Josephine Dress and Top Pattern to create a completely different look from the original. I may just have to make my daughter a coat after all!
I just love adding my own twist to a great pattern design. Thanks again to Ashley and Emily for inviting me to be a part of their Flip This Pattern series and giving me the chance to do just that!
