You know how once in a while you stumble upon a sewing pattern that seems to be just about perfect? One that you wonder how you ever got along without it? Well, a few weeks ago I bought the ‘Sassy Knit Peplum Tank’ an instant download PDF sewing pattern from Cole's Corner Creations on Etsy, and I absolutely LOVE it. I’ve made it seven times already! I bought the size 1 –7 and have made sizes 3, 4 and 5. I have found that the sizing runs a little small, so I cut up one size and it fits perfect. Then I then went back and purchased the same pattern for sizes 8 – 16, because you never know when you might have to wip up a Birthday gift or something. (that sounds so much better than ‘just because’ lol) This pattern is so quick and easy to sew you’ll find yourself making several. Once I started I couldn’t stop. Even with the peplum it doesn’t take much fabric, making it a great scrap buster. I used fabric left over from other projects, remnants and tee shirts to make mine. The only problem I had was the neck and armhole bindings, but that was my error, not the pattern’s. I stretched where I shouldn’t have and it made them a little loose, but not enough that I wanted to unpick and re-do them. It is such a pleasure to work with a pattern that comes together so easily and so nicely. It makes me want to sew even more! I just wish it came in my size!
I made each one a little different, varying the trims and bindings. The peplum can be made lined or unlined. I lined them with coordinating fabrics for that added pop of colour. Instead of hemming the unlined peplums I added ric rac or trim to the hemline, making it even faster and easier! Don’t you just love the cute high low hem?
I am thinking of lengthening the peplum and turning the top into a dress. I think it would be adorable. I can’t say enough good things about this pattern, and look forward to trying more of Cole's Corner Creation's patterns! And since everything looks better on a cute little girl, I’ll leave you with this…… my little ‘adopted’ granddaughter hamming it up for the camera.
So do yourself a favour and hop on over to Cole's Corner Creations and pick up your copy today. You won’t be sorry!
I am not affiliated with Cole’s Corner Creations, I am just extremely happy with this pattern!
